Part of the Christianity and Renewal - Interdisciplinary Studies book series (CHARIS)

Abstract

This paper is about a problem of “identity crisis” among Orthodox peasants in Ukrainian provinces of the late Russian Empire, which was initiated by “charismatic” religious movement of Maliovantsy. This crisis led to a formation of new non-Russian and non-Orthodox peasant culture which contributed to a building of a Ukrainian national identity not only from “above” through efforts of intellectual elite, but also from below through “cultural production” and innovations of Ukrainian peasantry.

Keywords

Maliovannyi religious movement Russian orthodox church Ukrainian ‘evangelical’ peasants
