Abstract :
At the moment the whereabouts of the tomb of Shenute are unknown. Yet some historical information on this topic is to be gained from literary sources. The author collects the available data and confronts these with the archaeological remains of the Shenute monastery near Sohag. The history of Shenute's burial and reburial(s?) is followed as far as possible.
