ENThe image of the Saviour called by the Biblical name of Jesus of Nazareth originates from the cult of the miraculous robed statue of Trinitarian Church in Madrid and features specific iconography. The article examines the dissemination of this image in Belarus in the 18th and 19th centuries. The scope of the analysis includes temples of the Catholic Order of the Blessed Trinity (the Trinitarians) that have brought the image into the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, as well as other Roman and Greek Catholic churches. The data is compared with previously discovered data on the dissemination of the image in Lithuania. The most important prototype of the image of Jesus of Nazareth for the entire Grand Duchy of Lithuania was the first robed statue of the kind in the Trinitarian Monastery Church of Antakalnis in Vilnius; it also used to be called Jesus of Antakalnis.The copies of the Jesus of Nazareth statue from Madrid which appeared in six Trinitarian churches in Belarus had a local impact. The role of Vilnius as the capital of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and the unity of the religious culture of the latter are manifested by the fact that Lithuania and a broad adjacent area of Belarus converge into a common habitat as regards the dissemination of the image of Jesus of Nazareth. Some local zones in South-West and North-West Belarus, around Brest-Kobryn and Vitebsk, also attach to this habitat but otherwise examples are scarce. In Belarus, 99 temples in total (among them, 65 Catholic churches and chapels and 34 Ukrainian Greek Catholic churches and chapels) have been discovered containing 80 sculptures and 32 pictures of Jesus of Nazareth. In Lithuania, though it is smaller, there are twice as many temples with this image. The following peculiar features of the dissemination of the image in Belarus have been revealed: the spread of Jesus of Nazareth there took place somewhat later than in Lithuania and began declining earlier; the image was present in the Ukrainian Greek Catholic temples; the dissemination did not encompass the entire territory of the country; the number of remaining examples is scarcer when compared to Lithuania. These features were caused by old confessional distribution of Christians in Belarus, changes in religious life of the region and its administration in the 19th century and the harsh consequences of wars of the 20th century and atheistic campaigns.
