Pirandellian critics almost unanimously acknowledge that holy patterns in the work of the Sicilian modernist author undergo a significant rearrangement by means of alterations reverting the eschatological substance of religious models into a tragic parable at the limit of nihilism. However, there is a sacred topic which, according to the most of Pirandello scholarship, constitutes an unbreakable knot, resistant to the upsetting effects of humouristic confrontation: it is the bond which ties the Holy Mother to her Son, the divine and unique core of humanity which cannot be dissected. The paper will propose an interpretive reshaping of that relationship.
