After leaving Jerusalem in the late twelfth century, the Hospitaller headquarters remained in Acre until their move to Cyprus in the late thirteenth century. The French-language works produced by the Hospitallers at this time included:
adminitrative texts emanating from their organization;
translations of texts into French from several other languages for use within the order.
