In the "History of the Russian Church," faithful to the methodological positions, deeply and extensively disclosed the nature of the social and religious origins of the Old Believers and Russian sectarianism, traced the evolution of the main directions of the denomination data in a pre-revolutionary Russia. It is shown that the failure of attempts at idealization of the Old Belief and sectarianism, refuted lozhnyeutverzhdeniya the predominance in their social principles of religious. True orthodoxy is characterized by the union with the autocracy for the joint pursuit of the Old Believers and sectarians, highlighted the personal involvement of Patriarch Nikon to the theological justification of the need and the "salvation" of persecution, as well as to the immediate holding of their lives. The latter sounds especially important now, when the theological and ecclesial communities of the Moscow Patriarchate, attempts to rehabilitate Nikon (and with it the Orthodox Church as a whole), put the blame for the use of repressive measures against the adherents of the old rites / 11 / and sectarians only on royal power. Modern Orthodox theologians argue for no good reason, though in his reform efforts of Patriarch Nikon chose to "act with pastoral prudence, without resorting to unnecessary violence." "It can be argued in all honesty - we read on the pages of the official organ of the Russian Orthodox Church - that if Patriarch Nikon was at the helm of the church schism in it would not have happened ... The emergence of a split was in the Russian Church the result of a number of errors of Alexei Mikhailovich" [ 5].
