Abstract: Capitalist enthusiasm can be defined as an engagement to develop business and economics in general by applying rational means of economic improvement, inventions and technologies. Not only practical activity, but also respective propaganda is one of the forms of this engagement. Attention has already been drawn in historiography to the fact that the activity of the Vilnius Temporary Archaeological Commission embraced all branches of science, which was related to the aims to transform it into a universal scientific society and later restore Vilnius University on its basis. From the viewpoint of the spread of the understanding of the value of science and the benefits of its practical application, the Vilnius Temporary Archaeological Commission can be considered, in a way, to have revived the activity of the Philomaths, all the more that, as a sign of direct succession, a former Philomath and Philaret, Mikołaj Malinowski (1799–1865), who campaigned for establishing new scientific institutions in Lithuania that would explore the economic situation, suggest the means of its improvement and promote technological innovations in 1858, became a full member of the Vilnius Temporary Archaeological Commission. One could find expressions of interest both in antiquities and the most progressive innovations in the activity of not only individual members, but also the entire Vilnius Temporary Archaeological Commission. E.g., in its sessions the Commission discussed the issues of the use of extractable resources for the energetic needs. Objects related with technological progress—in this case, examples of innovations rather than antiquities—were included in the collections of the Vilnius Museum of Antiquities. Some members of the Vilnius Temporary Archaeological Commission were actively engaged in the promotion and propaganda of the modern economic thought.[...]
