Metadata for 176 volumes of Collection Treasury A (16th-19th century) at the National Library of Malta have been added to vHMML Reading Room. The collection is divided into two series: Archives of the Order of Saint John and Archives of the Università of Mdina and Università of Valletta, Vittoriosa, and SengleaDocuments once belonged to different archives and concern the activity of the Treasury (Tesoro or Comun Tesoro), the Assembly of Conventual Chaplains, the Congregation of War, the Secrecy  (Secrezia, Segrezia, or Officium Magisterialis Secretiae), and the foundations (fondazioni) of the Order of Saint John and its members. Records also concern the Jesuit College, the Monastery of Saint Mary Magdalene, the Santo Spirito Hospital, and the Universitates of Mdina and Valletta. Records were probably gathered and reused for administrative purposes by the Commission for national assets (Commissione dei domini nazionali) established by the French and later by the British government in Malta.
