ABSTRACT
The author focuses on the topic of “Lipovean-Russian” from Romania, a denomination that he proposes as an alternative to the mainstream one, “Russian- Lipovean”. The author of the paper documents on the history of this ethnic minority, which is also a religious one. In his analysis, the role of the Church is carefully examined, as it shaped the political context in which the Lipovean-Russians lived and their respective cultural life. The author also analyses the differences among different religious branches of this community.
