«Не папессы, не еретички»: феномен христианского женского богословия в старообрядчестве

С. 102-104.

In Old Belief position of the woman was peculiar. The woman needed to observe religious norms and precepts. Founding fathers of Old Belief equalized men and women in a saving feat: "We Smesitsya in one herd with celestial forces, – the archpriest Habakkuk, – both men, and women, both fellows, and girls wrote". Respectively, calling "truly believing" to firmness, he recognized for women the active spiritual force capable of fight for true belief. As a result the female divinity in old belief developed within three centuries and in many respects influenced the special status of the woman in an Old Belief community.
