Constituting the largest Catholic Christian group in the Middle East, the Maronites of Lebanon are the devout followers of Saint Maron (d. 410) of Antioch. The Maronites were particularly influential in the creation of the modern state of Lebanon and its independence from the French in 1948. Despite various instances of oppression and persecution throughout their history, the Maronites have managed to remain a dominant force in Lebanese political and cultural life. Using rare footage and insightful interviews, this absorbing documentary traces the history of this ancient community to modern day Lebanon, capturing its substantial contribution to religious and cultural diversity in the Middle East.
