The Stranniki (Russian for Runaways or Wanderers) are the strong Pomorsky Old Believers who rejected prayers for Tsar Peter and all government papers (identification, passports, money, etc). They would not wear clothing contrary to Old Orthodox Russia, nor eat with those of contrary Faith and Practice. Keeping themselves separate from the antichrist society they went far into the Siberian wilderness. This blog is about these people and my effort to conform my life to theirs.

Romanian Old Believer Staretz

I was just in contact with an Old Believer who spent time with those in Romania. They say, along with their Staretz, that all Old Believers will soon be Stranniki, or wanderers. Time is running out, if you ask me.
