I think it's very important to distinguish between the Old Believers and the many sects that arose contemporaneously with them and which account for any number of the strange ideas - see the series of threads discussing - links to which are contained in the stickied thread titled 'Resource Threads' at the head of this forum.

Many years,

Neil

Yes, there were stranger groups than the Old Believers, but the Old Believers had plenty of strange ideas themselves. Everything I said above is with regards to the main body of Old Believers.

The Servant of God Father Patapios Emilianov was a Russian Orthodox presbyter in Nizhnaja Bogdanovka. In an effort to bring Popovotsy (priested) Old Believers into communion with the Russian Orthodox Church, the latter agreed that those who did so would be permitted to retain their historic praxis and unique spirituality. These were known as Edinovertsie or Uniate Russian Orthodox and Father Patapios' parish was such a former Popovotsy community.

In 1918, Father Patapios sought to enter communion with the Catholic Church. He was received, in orders, by Metropolitan Andrij and accompanied by his parishioners, numbering 852 adults. During the early '30s, Father Patapios, together with many Russian Catholic and Orthodox clergy and hierarchs, was arrested and transported to the gulags. On 14 August 1936, he was martyred in odium fidei at Nadvojtsy in the Republic of Karelia.

There are no books or webpages specifically devoted to him, as far as I know. The only photo of which I'm aware is copied on the Directory at https://www.byzcath.org/index.php/find-a-parish-mainmenu-111?sid=524:by_church.

Many years,

Neil, thanks for that info! I really appreciate it!

Mar Babai, I too would be curious about the lestovkas that you make. What materials do you use? Do you sell them? As Alex asked, could you provide some photos?

Thanks for the confirmation, Neil!

I wish our Russian friend would return and share more with us. I would enjoy hearing more about him and his community in Russia.

Late reply-

Sure! I use wooden dowels, q-tips and leather-like vinyl and wood beads.
