Old Russian greeting and religious sign of respect

Postby Matthew96br » Aug 30th, 18, 17:56

Hello all,

I am doing some research into styles of greeting and would like to know what Russian greeting is being spoken in a video on youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqYJDgJx6Zs&t=2511s

The clip comes at 41:51-41:53.

A Russian friend of mine suggests that it is a very old greeting used to express great respect. And means that you bow your head to the ground with respect. Unfortunately, I do not know how to spell it and have seen it as 'schallom beim', 'scholleben', and also 'schollem bein', although none of these seem to be correct spellings of any Russian word. I cannot find this in any dictionary that I look in.

My apologies for such a very strange request, and for not being able to provide any more information. Thank you in advance for any suggestions or assistance.
