Ritual and confl ict in the Hospitaller church of St John in Acre: the architectural evidence VARDIT SHOTTEN-HALLEL (HEBREW UNIVERSITY OF JERUSALEM)

This chapter describes an important building operation performed by the Order of St John at Acre before the year 1252. The series of events preceding this operation is beyond the scope of this short description. However, several episodes in the life of the Hospitallers at Acre are relevant to our discussion and will therefore be mentioned.
