Abstract: This article gives an analysis of the sculptural compositions of the Beatitudes located in Vilnius's Sts. Peter and Paul church. These baroque stucco figures have not yet been studied from the sacral perspective. The plasticity of the works has been discussed only distantly and their significance in the iconographic scheme of the church has not been evaluated. Made by The influence of Ripa's emblems' collection "Iconology" has not been considered important for the creators of the sculptures, P. Perti and G. M. Galli. While analyzing the object, I discovered that the sculptural cycle of the Beatitudes was a significant component of the iconography of Antakalnis church. The sculptures, located in the main nave, were created independently, but in harmony with other iconographic themes. I argue that the arrangement of the stucco figures was decided by C. Ripa's "Iconology" canon. The analysis shows that the sculptures reflect the aim of ecclesiastical art which is to spread religious knowledge among the fold
