The Schepenese mummy in the St. Gallen Abbey Library had been the reason for a controversial debate in the last few days, which was triggered by the theater project by the cultural worker Milo Rau, the Catholic denomination said on Wednesday.

As the owner of all the holdings of the Abbey Library, the Administrative Council has now made an overall assessment and will now “seriously examine the transfer of Shepenese to Egypt,” it said. The committee was advised by cultural and legal experts.
