[[Image:StPola(Boula).jpg|thumb|Coptic icon of Abba Paule El-Tamoohe]] '''Abba Paul of Tammah''' (or Paule El-Tamoohe - pronounced ''Boula El-Tamoohe'' in Arabic) lived as a lonely monk in the mount of Ansana of the historical ancient city of Ansana, currently in the Minya governorate of Egypt. He spent his life in lengthy fasts and worship to the extent that our Lord told him "that's enough my beloved Paule." He befriended, towards the end of his life, Abba [[Bishoy]] of Shihat desert, when Abba Bishoy visited the mount of Ansana, where he departed.
Saint Paule departed on the 7th of the [[Church of Alexandria (Coptic)|Coptic]] month of [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paopi Baba] (17 October), around 415 AD. His body is now in the Monastery of Abba Bishoy in the desert of Shihat. (Until this day, the incorrupt body of Saint Bishoy and the relics of Saint Paule of Tamooh still lie together in the main church of the monastery of Saint Bishoy in Wadi-El-Natroun, Egypt.)
