Abstract [en]

This paper analyses sources for the life of the Ingrian peasant prophet Lëvuška (Leontij, Laure) Semenov Lemboinen (fl 1619–52), previ- ously known to scholarship mainly from a 1637 court hearing at Nyenskans. The movements of his family from Korbosel ́skij to Ingris (Ižorskij) pogost in 1617/18 are traced, and the environments in which he became a man are reconstructed. The paper adduces some new information about the events leading to the 1637 court examination as well as Lemboinen’s time in prison, and identifies him, in his final years, as the probable leader of a semi-monastic community of both sexes in an abandoned religious house on the banks of Lake Ladoga.
