Shenoute the Great (c.347-465) led one of the largest Christian
monastic communities in late antique Egypt and was the greatest
native writer of Coptic in history. For approximately eight
decades, Shenoute led a federation of three monasteries and emerged
as a Christian leader. His public sermons attracted crowds of
clergy, monks, and lay people; he advised military and government
officials; he worked to ensure that his followers would be faithful
to orthodox Christian teaching; and he vigorously and violently
opposed paganism and the oppressive treatment of the poor by the
rich. This volume presents in translation a selection of his
sermons and other orations. These works grant us access to the
theology, rhetoric, moral teachings, spirituality, and social
agenda of a powerful Christian leader during a period of great
religious and social change in the later Roman Empire.
