The Old Believers’ history starts since the Christianization of Kievan Rus. Reforms introduces by Patriarch Nikon led to separation inside the Russian Orthodox church: in 1656 at the local council all those who used two fingers for the sign of the cross were declared heretics. Over 300 years the Old Believers are fighting for their faith.
