The Levant (/ləˈvænt/) is an approximate historical geographical term referring to a large area in the Eastern Mediterranean. In its widest historical sense, the Levant included all of the eastern Mediterranean with its islands and all of the countries along the Eastern Mediterranean shores. The term entered English in the late 15th century from French. It derives from the Italian Levante, meaning “rising”, implying the rising of the sun in the east.
