498 volumes and boxed papers from the Archives of the Archconfraternity of the Holy Rosary were digitized by the Malta Study Center in 2018. The Archconfraternity of the Holy Rosary was founded under the auspices of the Dominican Order circa 1575, and was associated with the Church of Saint Mary of Porto Salvo and the Dominican Priory in Valletta, where the confraternity’s chapel is located. Members of the Archconfraternity dedicated themselves to the ministry of those condemned to capital punishment in Malta among other charitable activities.
