Mari Orthodoxy

A XIX Century religious movement among the Mari, one of the native groups of the Volga-Kama region. It is unclear to me (from Werth, below) whether it represented an attempt to create an indigenous Orthodox local church or was a syncretistic sect, possibly the same as the present "Marla Faith". More information would be appreciated.
