White Monastery Fragments in the University of Michigan Collection

Shenoute of Atripe (ca. 348-465). Content: Canon 7. Acephalos work A13: 79: i.1-ii.32. Is Ecclesiastes Not Wise: 80: i.2-ii.33. Parchment, 1 leaf, 380 x 288 mm. Verso. Origen: White Monastery (Atripe, Egypt). 8th AD. Mich. Ms. 158. 14 b: White Monastery Codex YR 79/80

The Monastery of Apa Shenoute, commonly known as the White Monastery, situated in Upper Egypt near Sohag, once possessed the largest Coptic library in Egypt. Unfortunately, none of the books that belonged to this monastery have survived intact. As the manuscripts were torn to pieces and sold to various individuals, fragments of them are scattered today in different collections around the world. The University of Michigan features prominently as one of the most significant repositories of White Monastery fragments.
