St. Lawrence’s Oratory is adjacent to St. Lawrence’s Cathedral, which served as the Hospitallers’ conventual church until they relocated their capital to Valletta. However, the Knights’ Inquisitors (think Spanish Inquisition) continued to be based in Birgu and attended services here. Is it me, or is it kinda weird that the Inquisitors went to a church dedicated to a saint who was tortured and supposedly grilled alive on a gridiron for his faith?
