The hospital ORDER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, founded by Guido of Montpellier for the care of the poor and sick, organised its charitable activities according to the example of the Order of St. John, too. Its Rule corresponds with the Rule of the Order of St. John in many instances literally or in its meaning.
