Grand Priory of Gozo: Book Donations to the Libraries of Tarxien and Zebbug - May 2010
It has indeed been a long-standing custom to donate literary works to various libraries throughout Malta and Gozo on behalf of the Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem. In fact, the Secretary General of the Grand Priory of Gozo of the Order continued this commendable deed by donating a number of books to the public libraries of both Tarxien and Zebbug, Malta. These libraries are under the jurisdiction of their respective local councils.
One of the books donated is indeed a publication authored by the Grand Prior of Gozo himself, the right reverend Monsignor Joseph Vella Gauci SChLJ entitled Bernardo Dupuo , a translation of one of Gozo's oldest romantic epics. The Grand Prior of Gozo has published a number of literary works of varying genres, including specialised studies of Christian Muslim mores and traditions which have received international recognition.
