Reply To: In what ways did indigenous Christians shape Lebanon’s history? What did you find most interesting about these communities?

Hi Miriam,

Thank you so much for sharing. Your post was very insightful, and I am so glad you touched on the Maronites’ economic and educational contributions to Lebanon. The Maronites developed trade relations, diplomacy, medical research, and universities to uplift Lebanon and all of its people. It is a tragedy that their legacy of developments is being barred from their use because of their Christian faith, despite these native Christians always aiding anyone when they were in power.

Great Post,
Audra Jones
