The Maronites in History
Originally published in 1986, The Maronites in History addressed what author Matti Moosa identified as a Maronite crisis of identity in the Lebanese cultural context. Offering a historical perspective on the whole of Maronite heritage and culture, Moosa sought to tell the relatively unknown story of one branch of the Syriac Christian tradition. In making known the history of his people, Moosa brought the past to light for students and scholars of the history of Christianity and the Middle East and offered hope in troubled times for a community struggling to come to meaningful terms with itself in the midst of cultural upheaval.
