Their religion was described as similar to that of the [[Crimean Karaites]] and so the Karimi Noahites gave their name to all [[Crimean-Karaitizers]] that copied their example.
The 40 families of [[Karaite-Turks]] settled in Bakhchisarai crrtainly certainly adopted this religion when they arrived and mixed with the Ghisolfi family.
In the 15th century their religion was already widespread in Novgorod and wad represented in Moscow by Elena of Moldavia and her son the Crown Prince Dimitry. However, Sofia Palaiologina started to bring the Russian church into alignment with Greece instead and cracked down on the Karimi who had to seek refuge with the Ghisolfis in the Crimean Khanate.
