Maronites take their name from a 5th century Monk called Maron who is revered in the Orthodox Church as a Saint (Hassid).

Despite their Syriac Rites, Maronites were of Acephali of Parthian (Mardaite) ethnicity and by the time of Nestorian Patriarch Ishoyahb, many had converted to Islam before John Maron was appointed as their first Patriarch after the 3rd Council of Constantinople in 680CE specifically in order to call them back into the folds of the Roman Church.
