Collecting Postage Stamps With Religious Themes
Collecting postage stamps with a religious (or related) theme is a popular pastime enjoyed by individuals the world over. The scope is surprisingly large; many religious holidays, such as Christmas and Easter, have been and continue to be commemorated on postage stamps.
COROS, the (sadly now-defunct) Collectors Of Religion On Stamps, noted the following sub-categories, and of course there are more that could be added.
|Bible Illustrated||Eucharistic Congresses||New Testament|
|Bible Quotations||Hymns||Old Testament|
|Churches and Cathedrals||Marian Philately||Sacred Art|
|Clergymen and Theologians||Monks||St. Paul|
