Thank you for the post. Interesting dates; where did you obtain these?

Maronite Church (Lebanon, diaspora; patriarchate)..(1182)

This one is definitely wrong. The founding of the Maronite Church is due to three historical events: the life and deeds of St. Maron, the establishment of the Monastery of Bet Maroun ("the House of Maron"), and the organization of the Maronite Partriarchate. Based on the writings of Theodoret and Chrysostom, we usually date St. Maron's life from 350-410 (although some have placed his death as late as 423). In a letter addressed to Pope Hormisdas in 517, monks of St. Maron address the Pope as the one occupying the Chair of St. Peter, and inform him that they are undergoing many sufferings and attacks patiently. You can read the extensive history of the Maronite Catholic Church here.
