Brief Country History
Lebanon officially referred to as the Lebanese Republic is an independent nation in Western Asia. Syria borders it to the east and north and Israel to the south, and Cyprus is located west across the Mediterranean Sea. The country’s position at the crossroads of the Arabian hinterland and the Mediterranean Basin facilitated its rich history and forged a cultural identity of ethnic and religious diversity.
The earliest evidence of human existence in Lebanon goes back to over seven thousand years, preceding recorded history. Lebanon was home to the Canaanites and the Phoenicians and their kingdoms made up a maritime culture that thrived for more than a thousand years (1550-539 BC). In 64 BC, the country came under the Roman Empire rule, and ultimately became one of the Empire’s leading Christianity centers. The Maronite Church, a monastic tradition, was established in the Mount Lebanon range during this era. Arab Muslims, later on, conquered the area, but the Maronites were able to hold onto their religion. A new religious group was, however, established in Mount Lebanon. This was known as the Druze and it lasted for centuries. The Maronites were able to re-establish contact with the Roman Catholic Church during the Crusades. They also affirmed their communion with Rome, and the relations they forged with the Latins have had an influence on the country into the modern era.
