The mid-5th-century writings of the Upper Egyptian monk, Shenoute of Atripe (c.347–465 ce), provide a unique glimpse into the early reception of Alexandrian Greek Christology in a Coptic monastic setting. Shenoute spent a long period of his life as a monk, and over eighty years as the spiritual father of a federation of three monasteries in Upper Egypt, near the modern town of Sohag. This chapter analyzes Shenoute's doctrine of the Incarnation in its controversial, interpretative, and ritual-liturgical contexts.
