Peremayanoftschins (i.e. Re-Anointers), is the name of a Russian sect which separated from the Russo-Greek Church about the year 1770 at Vetka. They agree in almost every respect with the Starobredsi, or "Old Ceremonialists," except that they re-anoint those who join them with their holy chrism. They also re- ordain those popes or priests who secede to them from the Establishment. The Peremayanoftschins are really a branch of the Popoftschins (q.v.).
