*DIACONOFTSCHINS, the followers of Alexander, a Deacon (hence their name) of the church of Vetka, from which he separated in 1706, from some dispute relative to the chrism and the sign of the cross; and this sect has since separated itself into three or four minor ones, all equally zealous dissenters. See Raskolniks.
