Women and the Order of St John in the Middle Ages image

An online evening lecture in partnership with the St John Historical Society to mark International Women’s Day.
Women were associated with the Order of St John of Jerusalem from its earliest beginnings. One of these was Constance of France, the sister of King Louis VII, who made a pilgrimage to the Latin East in the 1170s and became a Hospitaller sister there. Why? Dr Myra Bom explains the Order’s appeal to Constance and other medieval women.
