In the context of Russian Orthodox church history, the “Old Believers” separated after 1666 from the official Russian Orthodox church as a protest against church reforms introduced by Patriarch Nixon between 1652–66. Old Believers continue liturgical practices which the Russian Orthodox Church maintained before the implementation of these reforms.
