Conversio Bagoariorum et Carantanorum

The Conversio Bagoariorum et Carantanorum, which translates in English as "The Conversion of the Bavarians and the Carantanians", is a Latin history written in Salzburg in the 870s. It describes the life and career of Salzburg's founding saint Rupert (d. 710), notably his missionary work in Bavaria, and the activities of the bishops and abbots in the Archdiocese of Salzburg. It concludes with a brief history of Carantania.

The work may have been written by Adalwin himself, the then resident Archbishop of Salzburg. It was intended to give Louis the German a particular historical perspective on a recent collision between the missionary work conducted from Salzburg and that pursued by the brothers Cyril and Methodius, who preached the new religion among the Slavic peoples of Great Moravia and Pannonia.

The work had inspired De Conversione Croatorum et Serborum, the earliest known source on the early history of Croats and Serbs, compiled most probably ca. 877/8 by Anastasius Bibliothecarius in Rome.
