Description - Old Believers in Modern Russia by Roy R. Robson

The schism that split the Russian Orthodox Church in 1667 alienated thousands of devout men and women - the Old Believers - who practiced their faith as outsiders for more than two centuries. Always at odds with the established Russian Orthodox Church and the tsar, these worshipers created a "culture of community" distinct from the dominant culture and society. Robson explores how the Old Believers adapted to rapid change in the early 20th century and reveals the many facets of Old Believer life.
