Miniaturi cu simboluri creştine


Miniatures with Christian symbols

In the historical context of the centennial of the Great Union in 1918, on the occasion of the celebration of the Holy Easter by Orthodox Christians, Romfilatelia launched a series commemorating the crucial moments of the life of Jesus Christ – the Entrance to Jerusalem, the Crucifixion, and the Resurrection.

For illustration of the postage stamps, the Cathedral of the Coronation from Alba Iulia was chosen. The stamps present icons from the patrimony of the Cathedral, whose foundation stone was laid on March 28th, 1921, the very next Easter day that year.

În contextul istoric al centenarului Marii Uniri de la 1918, cu ocazia sărbătoririi Sfintelor Paşti de către creştinii ortodocşi, Romfilatelia a lansat emisiunea care comemorează momente cruciale din viaţa lui Iisus Hristos – Intrarea în Ierusalim, Răstignirea şi Învierea.

Pentru ilustrarea mărcilor poştale, a fost aleasă Catedrala Încoronării din Alba Iulia, cu hramul Sfinţilor Arhangheli Mihail şi Gavril. Mai precis, cele două mărci poştale cu valoarea nominală de 1,30 lei prezintă icoane din patrimoniul Catedralei de la Alba Iulia, a cărei piatră de temelie a fost pusă în data de 28 martie 1921, chiar a doua zi de Paşti.

Coliţa dantelată a emisiunii filatelice are valoarea de 12 lei şi reproduce icoana Răstignirea Domnului, aflată pe iconostasul Catedralei. Produsele filatelice special lansate pe piaţă cu această ocazie sunt albumul filatelic (emis în 421 exemplare), respectiv un timbru de argint. Machetator al mărcilor poştale este Mihail Vămăşescu.

Sărbători fericite!

  1. We saw a lot of fascinating religious art on our recent trip to Spain and Portugal. These stamps, which are beautifully done remind me of our museum visits.

    • Yes, the religious art is beautiful and fascinating, and it has a long tradition in Europe. The Eastern Europe Orthodox icons take their origins from Byzantine and carry that traditions through the centuries of Christian faith. I was lucky to see many times the images of these stamps, because they are from a cathedral in my own city. Thanks for your comment!
