These persons might have been murdered, committed suicide, died of illness, or in war.

Because of the nature of these deaths the earth cannot accept them until their time comes which means they do not receive a proper burial and are sometimes not buried at all but covered with rocks or sticks.

In a Dual-Faith setting (in which Orthodoxy and folk tradition are combined) this ritual prepares the deceased’s for his or her meeting with God.

They then dress the body in all-white, handmade clothing left slightly unfinished because it belongs not in this world but the “other world.” In Christianity, the white clothing worn by the corpse represents the pure life the deceased promised to live when he or she was baptized.

In the houses of Old Believers the feet are placed closer to the icon corner so the deceased faces the corner and can pray if he or she desires.

Many of them are now inseparable parts of everyday life, or simply common social etiquette, though they often have their origins in superstition.

The body must wear a belt during its burial because the deceased will need it when he or she is resurrected during the Last Judgment.

Belts are significant in both Christian and folk rituals.

The priest then places a paper crown on the head of the deceased and the mourners throw soil and coins into the grave (the coins are either to pay for transit to the “other world” or for the space in the cemetery).

After the funeral, mourners sing laments depicting the deceased leaving his or her family and the soul departing from the body.

In folk tradition, belts mark out an individual’s private space and prove that he or she is a member of society and protect the wearer from dark forces.
