This chapter explores the place of missionaries during the period of French mandate rule over Syria and Lebanon that spanned the decades between two world wars. The Syrian and Lebanese contexts during the interwar years illustrate the great variety of factors that shaped government-missionary interaction, including diverse local circumstances, shrewd calculation on both sides, and an unstable balance of power between French administrators, missionaries, and local leaders. The French government-missionary relationship in Syria and Lebanon certainly had a coherent foundation, but was also shaped by significant local specificities and conflicts.

Keywords:   French mandate rule, interwar years, government-missionary interaction
