the reason I present this Taxonomy — to make sense out of non-sense.
A simple historical classification system (below) accurately defines confused sub-groups of non-dukhobor Spiritual Christians, who, a century ago were told by Demens and Young and Samarin in Los Angeles that they should all falsely claim to be "Molokans" in America no matter what or who they were in Russia, or became in America.
I have been researching the history of Spiritual Christians (folk Protestants) from Russia, my heritage, since entering college in the 1960s.
I found many inconsistencies, errors, myths and misunderstandings published, and in oral histories.
Their ancestry can be a mixture of Caucasian and Asiatic peoples; including Armenian, Chuvash, Finn, German, Russian, Tatar, Ukrainian, Mordvin, etc.* The term "Spiritual Christianity" (Russian: dukhovnoe khristianstvo) specifically refers to "Russian folk Protestantism," not all of the 100 types of sectarians (Russian: sektanty).The phrase was used by Molokane to and other heretics to describe themselves, and was popularized in scientific literature by Moscow Professor Alexander Ilyich Klibanov (1910-1994), a historian, religious scholar, and pioneering researcher of religious and social movements in Russia.I traveled to the Former Soviet Union 5 times (1992, 1997, 2007, 2011, 2015) for more than a year total time, to visit and document Spiritual Christian communities. While visiting nearly 100 Spiritual Christian congregations around the world, differences between the often confused faiths became clear to me.My summary findings here and at are updated as time permits.
