So, this, like many orders of chivalry today is the subject of some confusion and tension. Back on the Wikipedia, I suggested a system for organizing the Hospitallers and several related groups. Not much came of it, but I thought I'd propose a similar plan here:

  • Order of Malta (the Catholic order with extended history from the beginnings to present)
The Four Main Protestant Orders
The Four non-German Commanderies of the Bailiwick of Brandenburg

Please let me know what you think.--David Boven 17:42, 17 May 2008 (CDT)
