Old Believers in Russia were (and are) a Christian sect created when the .

Old Believers in Russia were (and are) a Christian sect created when the patriarch Nikon initiated reforms to the Russian Orthodox Church (c. 1650) and further reinforced during Peter I's campaign of transforming the Russian Orthodox Church to an extension of his imperial government (c. 1700), in keeping with European models at the time. This is a completely satisfactory book (nay, it is an edifying book!), but it is focused upon a limited amount of temporal territory for someone (like myself) who was looking for more background and a broader history of the Old Believers.

Robson explores Old Believer experience from the inside in this first detailed study of the group in the late imperial period. This is an academic book about the Old Believer movement in Russia focusing on the early 1900s and some in the late 1800s. He integrates historical methods with communication theory and symbolic anthropology to reveal the many facets of Old Believer life. It is not a history of the movement from the beginning or primarily on its beliefs but rather on how the movement related to the government, society and its origin, the Russian Orthodox church. I was able to find relatively few books in english on this topic.

A reader might expect a gauzy description of believers in church, or perhaps an anti-Semitic rant from a skinhead thug with a cross tattoo. Instead, Geraldine Fagan introduces us to Russian Molokans, a homegrown form of Christianity. She pivots quickly to Piotr Orlov, a Russian Old Believer who says, "If God continues to permit everyone on this sinful Earth to exist, then we can't insist that they all be of the same faith

The schism that split the Russian Orthodox Church in 1667 alienated thousands of devout men and women. These traditional worshipers, who came to be known as the Old Believers, practiced their faith as outsiders for more than two centuries. Denied the Russian Orthodox Church's sacraments, they in turn denied that its "new" ways could lead them to salvation. Always at odds with the established Russian Orthodox Church and the tsar, the Old Believers created a vibrant separate culture within the imperial Russian state. Old Believers in Modern Russia shows how Russia's most traditional religious group created a "culture of community" distinct from the dominant culture and society. This culture provided a lens through which the faithful could view, interpret, and interact with their world. Focusing especially on imperial Russia's twilight years, Robson explores how the Old Believers adapted to rapid change in the early twentieth century. Until recently, little has been known about Old Believer faith and culture. Most previous studies have relied upon information provided by outsiders, usually the state or the Russian Orthodox Church. Robson explores Old Believer experience from the inside in this first detailed study of the group in the late imperial period. He integrates historical methods with communication theory and symbolic anthropology to reveal the many facets of Old Believer life.
