  • Who are nikonitans?
Those following the Nikonian reforms.
  • Is myrrhon the same as myrrh?
Yes. Chrism, specifically.
  • Popovtsy do, up to this day, receive "nikonitans" who have been properly baptized with myrrhon, whereas the priestless always baptize converts including Popovtsy. -- What does priestless mean here? Bespopovtsy? (cf. Old Believers)
