A person who adheres strickly and often excessively to a tradition, especially : one preoccupied with the purity of a language and its protection from the use of forgein or altered forms
The definition of purist:
-Merria & Webster
A purist is one who desires that an item remain true to its essence and free from adulterating or diluting influences.
FYI, to me "purist" is a neutral word that simply refers to a person who wishes things to remain as close as possible to their original form, for what ever reasons.
Plus, I think we should have buried Tolkien in a larger coffin, he probably cant turn very well in his. -Rossmonster
