The Exmoor Preceptory No.638 was treated to a wonderful lecture entitled:

“The order of St. John and his relationship to Freemasonry”

 by E.Kt. Jon Cozens – Pr.1st Constable.

E.Kt.Jon Cozens, Pr.1stCon. gave a stimulating and in depth lecture on the origins of the Order of St John of Jerusalem. Its purpose of providing hospital facilities for Pilgrims to the Holy Land. The Order established very early in the custom of pilgrims visiting the Holy Land. They continued to do this with varying degrees of success throughout history. The lecture traced the development through the early years of the Order Its base in Jerusalem, well before the establishment of “The poor Soldiers of Christ.” The history of St John was outlined in detail through its move to Cyprus, Rhodes and eventually a home in Malta. He highlighted some of the key leaders of the order not least among them “ 49th Grand Master of Jean Parisot de Valette whom the current city of Valetta in Malta is named. The lecture also saw the parallel development of the Knights Templar and their relationship to the Knights of St. John. It further explored the relationship of Freemasonry within this originally Roman Catholic Order. The paper presented by E.Kt. Jon Cozens was well received by all present.

The R.E.Provincial Prior for Somerset, expressed his personal thanks for all the hard work and research that had gone into the paper by E.Kt.Jon Cozens.

The lecture is well recommended to other preceptories that do not have a candidate for a meeting. For those who are keen on the history and development of the order it contained accurate detail and fact. For those who have not ventured into the history it gave a fascinating insight into our order and its origins.
