Abstract. The Ukrainian one-figured embroidered shrouds, which dominated almost until the beginning of the XIX-th century, represent the so-called syndonic type of iconography. On the example of the few preserved Ukrainian monuments of the seventeenth and mid-nineteenth centuries and analogies investigated the formation of the main type and iconographic differences in the works of the leading monastic centers of church sewing. Ukrainian embroidered shrouds with the iconographic plot «Christ in the Tomb» appear as a distinctive phenomenon in sacred art.

Keywords: shroud, iconography, embroidered, Christ in the tomb, Sindon, attributes of passions.
