In this study the main attention is paid to the virtues of the ideal female image in occasional literature of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. In the analysis of the wife’s place in the family, her relations with her husband and children, her place in the religious community and her behaviour in the face of death, the author discusses the main social roles of the noblewoman as obedient wife, devoted mother, pious churchgoer and generous patron of the poor. Attention is also paid to training for these social roles and how they are described in the sources. The issues raised in the paper are investigated against the general background of European Christian culture.
