The preponderance of evidence for the movement derives from sources detailing its origin and early years. Evidence of later periods in the movement's history is inevitably sparser. It arises most often when specific internal or external circumstances impinge on the movement in such a way as to call forth literary comment. The vast majority cover the life of Pachomius, who founded the first monastery at Tabennese in AD 323, his initial organizational efforts, the expansion of the federation during his lifetime, and its continuation by his immediate successors, Petronius, Horsiesius, and Theodore, after his death in AD 346. It parts rarely thereafter and not in specifically Pachomian literature, offering fleeting and uncertain glimpses at select moments in the movement's later history.

Keywords:   Abraham, Farshut, Pachomius, Petronius, Horsiesius, Theodore, Tabennese
