Abstract

The article is devoted to the historical and cultural monuments of the Old Believers in the South of Russia. The history of the Old Believers’ temples erected mostly in the late 19th – early 20th century reflected the vicissitudes of the past time. The Old Believers Communities concentrated their activities on the preservation of religious traditions, bequeathed by the ancestors. Currently, the Old Believers adapt to a changing world without losing the stable orientation on traditional values.

Keywords: South of Russia, Old Believers, cultural heritage, religious heritage.
