  • Rukopisi Verkhokam’ia (Manuscripts of Upper Kamah, 15th-20th Centuries), 1401-2000

    These manuscripts are representative of the culture of the Russian people who first settled the area of Upper Kamah in the 16th century and whose migrations greatly increased in the 17th century. These people, mainly Old Believers, were fleeing church reforms and were looking for a place where they were able to continue observing their rituals and traditions. A part of the Old Believers population were forbidden to use books written after the Nikonian Reform. Thus they used manuscripts instead, until the 20th century. These manuscripts, although mostly religious in nature, are also reflective of the lives and ideas of the Old Believers. Includes printed catalog Rukopisi Verkhokam’ia free with collection
