In the 17th century, a community of Catholic Maronites was confronted by Latin rite Catholic missionaries animated by Counter Reformation fervor. Unprepared to deal with people formed by historical and cultural conditions so different from their own, the missionaries brought confusion to Aleppo. This account drawn from previously unknown documents describes the day to day anguish experienced by the community.
