Экспедиция в Республику Уганда

Традиционная культура. 2017. № 3. С. 179-191.

The article deals with a very recent phenomenon – the three communities of Orthodox Old Believers that appeared in the Republic of Uganda in the 1990s. This faith originated in Russia, but in Uganda all its adherents belong to the native ethnic groups and converted to Old Believers from other religions in adulthood. The general description of the Ugandan Old Believer communities is based on field evidence collected in 2017 by the expedition of the Institute for African Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences – 125 questionnaires, 34 structured interviews, hundreds of photo and video records.
