MEDIA REVIEWS

"A superb historian and teacher, Professor Crummey has put together a volume of essays which is erudite, perceptive, balanced, and eloquent. Firm and persuasive concerning his own views, he is simultaneously gracious and open toward those of others. These essays together will become maybe the best starting point of our study of Russia's Old Believers in the 17th and 18th centuries and a wonderful tool for teachers of undergraduate and graduate courses."--David Goldfrank, Professor of History at Georgetown University

"Robert Crummey's has provided an elegant and thoughtful account of the main issues in the story of Old Belief as well as a fine introduction to a major aspect of the social and religious history of Russia." -- Journal of Social History

"I can think of no better entry into the world of the Russian Old Believers and the study of them than this collection. It is essential reading for anyone interested in Russian religious culture, but will also be of interest to those who work on seventeenth and eighteenth century Christianity or any form of religious dissent."--Church History
