Inglism (full name: the Old Russian Inglistic Church of the Orthodox Old Believers-Inglings ) is a new religious movement , one of the directions in Slavic neopaganism (often not recognized by supporters of its other directions)  . Created in Omsk (referred to by the Inglings as “ Asgard ”  ) in 1992 by the propagandist of ufology and occultism Alexander Khinevich  . It was finally formed by 1998. It is a radical version of Rodnoverie    .
Religious scholar V. B. Yashin, candidate of historical sciences, associate professor of the theology and world culture department of Omsk State University , wrote in 2001: “The Inglistic church maintains fairly close contacts with the regional department of the RNE , in particular, Barkashovites ensure security and maintain order during mass events Ingling ”  .
In 2009, all registered Ingling associations were closed in connection with their extremist activities (in particular, propaganda of the idea of racial superiority of the “Slav-Aryans” and the use of the swastika symbol “Kolovrat” )     . Khinevich was given a suspended sentence; two years later, his criminal record was dropped  .
According to adherents of Inglism, the very word " Inglia " means the primordial divine cosmic fire from which the world arose. Initially, the ancestors of the people lived in the constellation Ursa Major , and then moved on the chariot of Whitemar to Midgard (planet Earth) on the ancient sunken continent of Daariya (Greek Hyperborea ), located at the North Pole. Later (106 thousand years ago) they moved to Belovodye , where the Iriy ( Irtysh ) river flowed. They survived the ice age (Great cooling 13 thousand years ago after the destruction of the second satellite of the Earth - Fatta with the help of nuclear weapons ).
The most common chronology from the Creation of the World in the Star Temple is a peace treaty between Asur, the prince of the Slavic Aryans, and Arim, the prince of the Empire of the Great Dragon (China) in 5508 BC. e. after the victory over China . One of the monuments of that era, the Englings consider the Great Wall of China and the symbolic image of the horseman slaying the dragon ( St. George ). After this victory, they wrote down ancient wisdom in the Avesta , and then in the Veles book .
Englings tolerate the personalities of the founders of world religions: Jesus , Muhammad , Zarathustra and Buddha . However, the true gods are considered Rod and its forms. In addition to the gods of the Sort, there are also a variety of spiritual essences of other dimensions: legs, harlegs and asss.
Englings observe five fasts , and fast on the seventh day of their nine-day week . Children under 12 years old, pregnant and lactating mothers, elders and old women after 60 years of age, soldiers on guard duty, and also wounded and sick do not observe fasting, as they need to eat to gain additional strength and health.
The nine foundations of Inglism include enlightenment , spirituality , compassion , repentance  , patience , peacefulness , love for one's neighbor, trial and determination.
During the ceremonies, the participants overshadow themselves with the Holy Sign - for this, the thumb, ring finger and little finger of the right hand come together, and the two remaining ones also come together and straighten (the same form of the palm is used by the Old Believers in Orthodox Christianity). Then, the index and middle fingers folded together are attached first to the forehead, then to the eyes (first to the left, then to the right), after to the mouth. A similar fall is called the small perunica . In a large perunica, after the forehead, the hand is attached to the left shoulder, then to the right, then to the stomach. There is a photograph [ clarify ] fire worship, while the right hands of the adherents of the movement are directed at him in a Roman salute .
During the service, hymns are sung, such as the “Hymn of God Kupala”, “Hymn of the Holy Land”, and “Hymn to Fire”.
According to the teaching of the Inglings , Inglia is the radiance emanating from the original God Ra-M-Chi. Under the gods, inlings, in the first place, are understood by ancestors . The Creator and the Virgin is the Father and Mother. Important is the veneration of all the Ancestors. The swastika denotes our spiral galaxy . The planets of the solar system have their patron gods: Horse - Mercury, Merzana - Venus, Perun - Jupiter, Orey - Mars, Stribog - Saturn, Wii - Pluto, Niy - Neptune, Varuna - Uranus, Indra - the asteroid Chiron.
One of the most revered gods of Inglism is Rod . It unites all the ancestors of man, poses the tasks of man before his embodiment on Midgard and acts as a judge in one of the three posthumous courts.
In the Slavic-Aryan Vedas, the Highest Gods are also described. Higher gods are understood as the initial informational structures (laws of the universe), which are personified in the role of the characters of the Slavic-Aryan Vedas. The version of this correspondence supported by the Inglings is the unity of the origin of the deities of Scandinavia, India and the ancient world from the Slavic gods.
Not to be confused with the Indian Vedas , the oldest religious scriptures of India.
The sacred texts of Inglism, issued by adherents of the movement for translations from different ancient languages, are collected in the so-called "Slavic-Aryan Vedas" (hereinafter - SAV), four parts of which were lawfully published in the early 2000s and survived three reprints until 2008 [ 10] . According to the conclusion of the commission-religious expert examination dated 04/14/2008, CABs contain a number of judgments that can be considered to contain signs of extremism  . On October 30, 2015, based on the expertise of specialists from the Omsk State Pedagogical University , who established that “imperative statements with semantics of incitement to actions reflecting the ban on interracial marriages were found in the texts of books; implicitly expressed information about the superiority of the white race in relation to the black race ”, the Central District Court of Omsk recognized the“ Slavic-Aryan Vedas ”as extremist material  . On February 25, 2016, the Omsk Regional Court upheld the decision of a lower court  .
Racial and evolutionary beliefs
The head of the Inglings, Alexander Khinevich, insists  on the existence of telegonia , which, according to modern concepts, is a pseudoscientific superstition  .
Hinevich denies the theory of Darwin’s evolution in the same way, proceeding from the following arguments: Darwin , as a Christian, knew the hypothesis of the origin of people from Adam and Eve , knew that only Semites came from them, knew that the word “Semites” comes from the Latin word simia - “monkey” and Greek eidos - “species” and on this basis developed a theory of evolution, which is incorrect, because all people could not come from one single pair, for example from Adam and Eve .
In the "Santiys of the Vedas of Perun", which is part of the "Slavic-Aryan Vedas" contains an appeal directed against interracial marriages: " Do not take wives with black skin, for defile the house and ruin your kind. "  The races of people in Inglism are divided according to skin colors, namely, “white”, “red”, “yellow”, “black”, and also “gray” (a certain hermaphrodite race that supposedly visited our planet). In particular, according to the teachings of Inglism, the Indians are a mixture of “black” and “yellow”, and the Jews are “gray” and “white”.
Contrary to self-designation, the Old Russian Inglistic Church of the Orthodox Old Believers- Inglings has nothing to do with the Old Believers , or Orthodoxy , or the Inglings  . And so called because the Inglings profess "the old faith of the great race" and "praise the Right "  . A. Yu. Khinevich explained this in his specific manner as follows: Christianity planted Nikon in Russia in the 17th century , and then “immediately the family prince Alexander Nevsky turned into a Christian, and the magician Sergius of Radonezh was recorded there, in the priests , as monks ... ”  .
Although in many ways - from the robes of A. Yu. Khinevich to the assurances that the Inglistic faith is traditional for the Russians - Inglism can be attributed to Rodnoverie , large native faith associations - the Union of Slavic Communities of the Slavic Native Faith and the Circle of Pagan Tradition - consider the Inglings as an organization that "discredits the reborn Slavic Movement ”  .
Famous writers close to Rodnoveri speak very unpleasantly about A. Yu. Khinevich and his organization. The well-known satirist M.N. Zadornov on his website described the ideas of Inglings about the appearance of people on Earth as “a mixture of glitches with Hollywood fantasies, implicated in the desire to present the Slavs with a new Bible”  , and the writer A. I. Asov dedicated A. Yu. To Khinevich, the pamphlet “Instructions for creating a“ rotten “sect using the Internet”  .
Sources of the Slavic-Aryan Vedas
The texts of the Slavic-Aryan Vedas (SAV) contain clear signs of borrowing, which, at least in the case of the Yngling Saga, becomes direct plagiarism . The diversity of these sources is no less interesting: here is the 13th-century Scandinavian saga, and the “Templar Legends” with a description of the cosmos of multidimensional worlds created in France at the end of the 19th century and brought to Russia by anarchist mystics, and the fantasies of the 1990s about ancient Slavic beliefs, and Indian “Vedic” terms, and science fiction, gleaned from the film “ Memories of the Future ”, once popular in the USSR, and racial theories. All this can easily be found on one page of the SAB: Perun , for example, can plow the expanses of the galaxy on spaceships such as the Whiteman during the battles of the Second Great Assa from the Templar Legends as an ancestor.
Discussion on the authenticity of the Slavic-Aryan Vedas
On various kinds of online forums dedicated to Rodnoverie and Vedism, the question of the authenticity of the texts of the SAB is often debated. At the same time, both the inglings and their opponents believe that only originals, that is, plates of precious metal covered with runes, can be subjected to examination .
The reasons for hiding these plates were first explained in a letter posted on some online forums in 2004 on behalf of A. Yu. Hinevich  . According to this letter, A. Yu. Khinevich himself always “lived a tradition and a kind of foundation”, and in the early 1980s he gave the family books to be rewritten by his friends. One such record came to the founder of the Venedov Union, V. N. Bezverkhoi , who sent a letter to A. Yu. Khinevich asking him to give him materials on the Old Faith. “Brief materials are sent to him for personal use, but after a while ... he publishes these materials in the Venedov newspaper Rodnye Prostory in the early 90s ...” It is impossible to confirm or deny this statement, since even if you wish, you can include such publications “Songs of the Gamayun Bird” by A. I. Asov. After publicity, heeding public requests, A. Khinevich publishes several books from the Slavic-Aryan Vedas series:
|“And then ... people began to appear who did not ask to share the Generic Heritage with them, but began to demand that they give them all the primary sources that they would investigate and would then dispose of them themselves. The actions of the Old Believers were logical ... The primary sources were transported to the deaf villages and hermitages, so that none of the source seekers could reach them. Now published literature differs only in the Communities of Russia, and the Communists dispose of it at their discretion. ”|
According to critics, this argument is used in order not to demonstrate to anyone nonexistent primary sources.
Over time, a second version appeared. Some priests, referred to in the Slavic-Aryan Vedas as guardian priests, considered that after the end of the Night of Svarog (the period of negative influence of various factors of cosmic origin ended in 1996), it was time to publish some of the books that the community of these guardians guarded many thousands of years. To implement this mission (publication), Alexander Khinevich was chosen. He was given the text of the translation from the runic alphabet into modern Russian. After he published the books, the aforementioned community of Guardian Priests no longer had contact with him, never handed him the originals of the books and did not report their location. This story of the emergence of gold plates containing some “ancient knowledge” and how the plates were connected into a book clearly echoes the appearance of the Book of Mormon , published in the first half of the 19th century by Joseph Smith . Although in the case of the Book of Mormon there is possible evidence for the existence of plates, in the case of CAB, no such evidence was found.
But to establish the authenticity or falsity of the texts of the Slavic-Aryan Vedas, the original is not required - it is enough to state numerous eclectic borrowings, the sources of which are united by one circumstance: all of them were in the reading circle of subscribers of the journal Science and Religion in the early 1990s.

- Kaarina Aitamurto. Russian Rodnoverie: Negotiating Individual Traditionalism . Aleksanteri Institute, University of Helsinki, 2007. Cit .: “Although many Rodnovers are highly suspicious about all kinds of religious authorities and organizational hierarchies, there are fractions in the movement which tolerate less deviance from the religious doctrines and have more authoritative leaders. Most notable of such organizations is the Ancient Russian Ingliistic Church of Orthodox Old Believers-Ingliists (ARICOOBI). The church was founded by a charismatic leader Aleksandr Hinevich (Pater Dii) in Omsk, but in recent few years, it has significantly increased its influence throughout Russia. Other Rodnover organizations do not, however, have very warm relations with the ARICOOBI, and the main reason for this refutation is the "sectarian" nature of the church. Although in 2004 it lost the official status of registered religious community, it has communities throughout Russia and professes massive selling of books and video material. The teachings of the church base on Vedas, texts that are claimed to be ancient Aryan holy scriptures, the oldest part dating from the 40,000 BP. Besides the Vedas, Ingliists teach their adherents for example “h'Arriiskaya arifmetika” and ancient Slavic grammar. Special emphasis is laid on "healthy way of life", which includes such very common features as eating natural and pure food, living responsible and sober life, but also ideas basing on theories of human biology and genetics which are very far from the academic perceptions .
