Description:

The paper relates that the Order of Saint Lazarus has undergone massive changes since it was first established in the 12th century; the paper describes how the Order of Saint Lazarus' downfall in Jerusalem, and the Holy Land, began in 1187 after Saladin invaded and conquered the Holy Land. The paper looks at how the Order of Saint Lazarus was prominent during the crusades and underwent major changes after they were expelled from Jerusalem. Finally, the paper looks at the modern incarnation of the order that was established in 1910 and that sought to continue the tradition established by the preceding Order of Saint Lazarus.

From the Paper:

"The Order of Saint Lazarus was one of five major orders that were founded in the Holy Land. Among these orders are included the Knights Templar, Knights Hospitaller, Knights of the Holy Sepulcher, and the Knights of the Hospital of Saint Mary of Jerusalem (The Military and Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem). The Order of Saint Lazarus originated as a leper hospital in the 12th century. Those that came under the care of the order were treated like brothers and sisters and obeyed a common rule like other members of the order. Originally, the Order of Saint Lazarus was established to be a purely hospitality order. Hospitallers were a group of men that were associated with a hospital in Jerusalem that was founded by the Blessed Gerard circa 1023 (Moeller). The Order of Saint Lazarus, as it came to be known during the Crusades, evolved from the hospital founded by the Blessed Gerard.
"The Order of Saint Lazarus' downfall in Jerusalem, and the Holy Land, began in 1187 after Saladin invaded and conquered the Holy Land. During this time, the Order of Saint Lazarus lost their main hospital and convent and a substantial amount of knights. The Order of Saint Lazarus began to rebuild their establishments after King Richard the Lionhearted defeated Saladin in 1191."
