Dear Readers and Friends:

The Maronite Research Institute (MARI) is undergoing major reorganization to find better sources of funding to continue to meet its objectives and improve its services and production. The Institute has been living off the contributions of a few people and at this time of even fewer. Its staff were all volunteers who can no longer respond to the increasing volume of tasks and inquiries.

Therefore, MARI has temporarily suspended publishing the Journal of Maronite Studies, but it is keeping all the previous issues available on its site for consultation. Meanwhile, resuming publication of the Journal will depend on your support and contribution.

MARI remains committed to its mission and to serving you. If we can be of any service, please do not hesitate to write to us. Kindly keep checking the site for announcements concerning our upcoming publications:

Maronite, Christians, Syriac, Aramaic, Lebanon, Saint Maron, Saint Maroun, Mar Maroun, Church, Eastern Churches, Eastern Christianity, Catholic, Lebanese, Mount Lebanon, Phoenicia, Near East, Middle East, Israel, Syria, Levant, History, Migration, Diaspora, Culture, الموارنة، لبنان
