Summary/Abstract: In this paper, we are pointing out the possibility of reading Milan Rakić’s poetry in a new light. We have opened this topic on religious theme as one of the main themes, not only in Milan Rakić’s poetry, but also in poetry of all Serbian modernistic poets. Rakić, along with Duĉić, has been considered as a creator of the modern poetic expression. It is believed that both of them have showed immense vocalic, semantic and artistic possibilities of the Serbian language. Rakić is rarely disputed, and as a poet he has never been marginalized. Today, we consider him as central pillars of Serbian poetry in every domain of its ratification, but primarily in love and reflexive domain. Therefore, we believe that it is of great importance to determine the extent to which Milan Rakić participated in the shaping of Serbian literary tradition in the field of religious themes, application of religious pathos and religious subtext, as well as how his basic poetry preoccupation in themes is imbued with religious topics.
