Founded around 1119 A.D. at a leper hospital in Jerusalem, Kingdom of Jerusalem.  Named after their patron saint, Lazarus, the care of lepers became the order's original mission.  King Fulk of Jerusalem recognized the order in 1142 A.D.  The order was canonically recognized as a hospitaller and military order of chivalry under the rule of St. Augustine in the Papal bull Cum a Nobis Petitur of Pope Alexander IV in 1255 A.D.  Although the brother's work centered around their charism of caring for those afflicted with leprosy, the knights of the order notably fought along side the knights of the Templar Order and Order of St. John in many battles, some such as the Battle of La Forbie in 1244 and in the Defense of Acre in 1291.  After the fall of Jerusalem, the order split in two main branches in Italy and France and continued their work with caring for those with leprosy.
