Based on similaries with episodes in the Life of Shenoute, Birger Pearson attributed the work to the vita tradition (1989). In their edition, Behlmer and Alcock (1996) identify the narrative as a pseudepigraphic discourse of Shenoute; see Emmel 2004, for the identification of the beginning of a work of Shenoute, You Know, O Brethren.
