Sobornosti: Essays on the Old Faith

ByMatthew Raphael Johnson

In the first of a series of books by Matthew Raphael Johnson, an Orthodox priest, the author investigates the Old Ritualists from an inside perspective, collecting essays and interviews previously only available in Russian, and asking the reader the provocative question: Who were the schismatics during the Old Believer schism of the 17th century? What was the "raskol"? With surprising answers and touching commentary, Father Matthew Raphael Johnson forces us to ask if a schism of over three hundred years, previously thought to be over "two versus three fingers", has relevance to Orthodox Christians today.
