Works of Shenoute of Atripe
Shenoute of Atripe (ca. 347-466) was the third archimandrite of the so-called White Monastery, located on Upper Egypt north of Thebes, just outside the town of Atripe (now the modern city of Sohag). He left an extensive literary heritage, which includes monastic canons, homilies for various religious feasts, and letters. Shenoute's writings provide an invaluable glimpse into the complex world of Egyptian monasticism in the 4th and 5th centuries. Notably, Shenoute is the most prominent author of Coptic literature, his writings being almost exclusively preserved in manuscript fragments from the White Monastery.
