Known as a food goddess and the nurse of the grain, Renenutet is otherwise involved in divine and funerary rituals as a provider of garments. This role has been explained by her alleged nature of goddess of vegetation, who supervises the harvest of flax. Nevertheless an objective reading of the sources and an analysis of their historical features reveal the weakness of this interpretation : the link between Renenutet, agriculture and food hardly occurs before the Middle or even New Kingdom, and has nothing to do with flax. And then it belongs to the realm of storage much more than to the vegetal and agricultural world. On the other hand, leaning back on the first documents pointing to Renenutet being involved in textile matters, in the Old Kingdom, reveals her role as a warden of valuables (food, precious fabrics and minerals) and their places of conservation.
