HISTORICALRECONSTRUCTION"I propose to take 1583-1584 route of M.K.Radvila Našlaitėlis’ (theOrphan) (he was best known for ordering the first accurate map of theGrand Duchy of Lithuania (GDL) in 1613) journey to the Holy Land.This historical figure is important in a deeper perspective, too. In 1586,right upon returning from this journey, he funded early baroque JesuitChurch of Nesvyžius built imitating Il Gesù of Rome consecrated in 1583.This fact testifies that the cultural phenomena of Western Europereached Lithuania and the GDL without delay. Thus, the fact may be deeplyconceptualised envisaging in it Lithuania’s becoming a genuinely integralpart of Europe as early as in the 16th c."Prof. Dr. A. Bumblauskas
