The Year of the Bible

<b>A Special Stamp for the Year of the Bible</b><p>The year 2007 is celebrated in Slovenia as the Year of the Bible. In this way we participate in the newer European practice of the actualization of the biblical content and cultural history. The Stamp Advisory Committee chose a draft that presents the original copy of Dalmatin’s Bible from 1584, which is the first Slovenian translation of the whole Bible.The special promotion of the Bible on the jubilee stamp is fully justified, because Dalmatin’s Bible is the fundamental document of Slovenian literary language. The stamp depicts the book it in all its height, width and thickness. The cover page lies on an enlarged page of the general foreword. The miniature sheet is decorated with parts of the illustrations from the cover, including among others the one that contains the year date 1584. Above the stamp is the title of the Bible&#58; “Biblia, tu je, vse Svetu pismu, Stariga inu Noviga Testamenta, Slovenski, tolmačena, skuzi Juria Dalmatina” and the bottom of the miniature sheet features the inscription &quot;The year of the Bible 2007&quot;.The oldest Slovenian translation of the Bible, and simultaneously Post of Slovenia's jubilee stamp will be specially promoted at the IOSOT World Congress bringing together biblical scholars between 12 and 20 July 2007 in Ljubljana. The images used for the production of the miniature sheet of 1 stamp and FDC are drawn from the archives of the National Library of Slovenia. <p>Jože Krašovec, Academician
