Real christianisation of prussians started in 16th century, in Lithuania even more later. First attempts to baptize prussian aristocracy were made by poles in about year 1000.
Once again ignorance. First use term old prussians, in science it's prefer term, prussians not existed.
Mendolf first christian king of Lithuania was "PRUSSIAN" he lived in PRUSSiA when he was baptized, and just in year 1260 fled to LT "with many brothers" .
Nonsence. Simply from outside, i.e. from Polish point of view all Balts were named as Prussians in 13th century, that's why Mendolf is mentioned as Prussian. Only from Polish persepctive. Lithuanian historians explained this.
So the direction of church vocabulary migration must be clear.
You even don't understand what you writing. Old Prussian term for church is kirki. Prussian lithuanian - baznyczia. Wise person will understand. You don't.
