The first reference of the name of Lithuania in written sources comes to us in the story related to the tragic end of St. Bruno’s mission in 1009 as described in the annals of Quedlinburg, Germany (Annales Quedlingburgenses). St. Brunon, alias Bonifacius, archbishop and monk, was killed by the pagans together with 18 of his brethren on the Russian – Lithuanian border on the eleventh year of his conversion and on the 9th of March ascended into the heaven.
