This chapter focuses on a collection in manuscripts of the Bibliothèque nationale (BN)—a set of twenty-six homilies for the evening raising of incense for Sundays in the first half of the church year, preserved as the first work in the manuscript Paris, BN ar. 4796. The manuscript is a copy that Amélineau had made of a manuscript that contained a statement of waqf to the benefit of the Monastery of St. Antony in Luxor. The manuscript's first few leaves are missing, but Troupeau attributed the collection to St. Shenoute on the basis of the colophon at fol. 82r: “the maymar of the great saint, Anba Shinudah the Archimandrite, is complete”.

Keywords:   Shenoute, Bibliothèque nationale, manuscripts, homilies, waqf
