Abstract: This article seeks ro examine several assumptions. First, that research on the various conceptions of women can be useful when one attempts to elaborate on the specific mind-set created by modern consciousness; second, that memoir legacy provides researchers with an opportunity to assess the degree to which values and behavioural norms of individuals from periods under studv are influenced by general socio-cultural tendencies and the degree to which they result from individual experiences, for instance a person's psychological development and the accompanying trials and crises. The well-known memoirs Keleri mano jaunystės metai Vilniuje: atsiskyrėlio atsiminimai (1818-1825) [Several Years of my Youth in Vilnius: the Memoirs of a Recluse (1818-1825)] by Stanislovas Moravskis, a Lithuanian public figure of the first half of the 19th century, were selected for the purpose of verifying the above theses. The article examines Moravskis' values as well as his conception of the qualities and the role of the ideal woman as they are reflected in the memoirs. The values of Stanislovas Moravskis were formed at a point of convergence between modern ideas and remnants of a mindset characteristic of an estate societv. One can assume that this coming together of divergent influences was among the reasons that determined the specific configuration of his ideals, notably the tendency to idealize the past as an era of justice, love and patriotism and to also appreciate freedom of thought; Moravskis worshipped the patriarchal model of the family, but he also accepted the notion that a woman can realize herself as an entity of drawing room life. On the other hand, a look at Moravskis' memoirs provides an opportunity to confirm the hypothesis that his personal experiences, such as family crises, the difficult relationship between father and son, various psychological traumas, significantly affected the formation of Moravskis' values
