Abstract: The Nadur parish church, following the major physical interventions it underwent at the beginning of the twentieth century, ranks as one of the most monumental works of ecclesiastical architecture not only in Gozo but also in Malta (fig. 2.1). This narrative is based on the remodelling of what was originally a rather mundane and modest church that through the vision of an enlightened clergyman, Dun Martin Camilleri and a talented sculptor and architect, Francesco Saverio Sciortino, was transformed into an ornate and imposing parish church that fulfilled the aspirations of the local community.
