The article aims to find out whether the appearance of the images of The Lord of Good Hope with its rare iconography in Lithuania was influ enced by the family history of the famous geologist Ignacy Domeyko (Lith. Ignotas Domeika, 1802–1889), while emphasising the contribution of his son, Rev. Hernán Domeyko (1859–1931), towards the dissemination of this cult. The history and iconography of the image, as well as the development of the veneration tradition in Santiago de Chile and the Vilnius Archdiocese is explored. The authorship of the painting of Vilnius Cathedral is estab lished, the erroneous date of its creation established in historiography is corrected, and the votives belonging to the painting are identified.
