The Knightly Orders of the Caribbean...
The Museum of the Order of St John of St. Christopher & Nevis, tells the story of the Antillean Order of Saint John from its colonial station, originally founded in Jerusalem during the Crusades (1050 AD), to its present commitment to providing health care in the Caribbean community preserving the legacy of monastic medicine.
Few recognize how the Knights of Christendom changed the course of world from the Crusades to the Age of Exploration, and the many crusades for social improvement that followed including the abolition of slavery, the crusades against blindness, malaria, polio; women's voting rights; the crusades for wellness (Wesley, Priessnitz, Keller, Kellog, Graham, Kneipp, Lust, Palmer, Still, etc.) and many others. Our Museums give you a unique opportunity to see this crusader history firsthand. »
