'''[[Old Calendarists]]''' are groups of Orthodox Christians who are in various levels of "resistance" against the mainstream Orthodox churches, identified mainly by their insistence on the use of the Julian Calendar. They are to be distinguished from the mainstream churches which simply follow the [[Julian Calendar]] yet remain in [[full communion]] with most or all of world Orthodoxy. Many Old Calendarists today say that their concerns about [[ecumenism]] are more significant than calendar issues.
An '''[[afterfeast]]''' (also known as postfeast) is a period of time following certain major feasts of the Christian year during which the feast continues to be celebrated. The mainstream churches liturgical life of the Church reflects this extended celebration by continuing to express the themes of the feast in the divine services celebrated during the afterfeast. Most commemorations that have varying positions on different Old Calendarist churches, ranging from an active desire to restore unity to afterfeast also have a denial of the Old Calendarists' Orthodoxyforefeast.
Some Old Calendarist groups are styled as '''True Orthodox''' or '''Genuine Orthodox''', and both terms are used in this article.
