: Well, "Old Believers" is the most usual name in English, and it's how they're listed in printed encyclopedias. "Old Ritualists" is the more literal translation of the Russian name (I believe). --[[User:ASDamick|Rdr. Andrew]] 22:02, 15 Apr 2005 (CDT)
Did Patriarch Nikon cause the schism as this article suggests? Perhaps this should be discussed much more.
Metropolitan Macarius, and others point toward the state, and not the patriarch, as the main cause.
