Description: Sta Venera: Midsea Books, 2009. 23cm., hardcover, 360pp., 111 color illus. The twenty essays in this collection represent a selection of studies on the Knights of St John and the art history of early modern Malta that the author, Head of the Department of the History of Art with the Faculty of Arts at the University of Malta, published between 1964 and 2007 in various Maltese and overseas journals and miscellaneous other publications. They are being reproposed in the belief that, in spite of the fact that the earliest among them may have become outdated by more recent research, they can still be read with profit.
