În articolul de pe Wikipedia rezervat molocanilor (cult despre care voi scrie mai târziu), apare următoarea informaţie:
„During the reign of Ivan the Terrible (1547-1584 A.D.), Matvei Simyonich Dalmatov, the first martyr of the Russian Molokan faith, split with the Nestorian Church and began to evangelize his family, his master, and local village members in and around the city of Tambov. Dalmatov carried this sectarian belief into Moscow, where a group of Mordvins heard his message and embraced it. Dalmatov was later martyred by Orthodox priests in a monastery prison by wheeling.”
În mod dubios, sursa lipseşte.
