The ever-increasing popularity of Vatican City stamps among collectors is well known. Quite a number of collectors seek out their forerunners, from pre-philatelic covers to stamp issues of the Roman States also known as Papal States [these can be found in a separate segment of this website under POSTAL HISTORY ITALIAN AREA and PAPAL STATES. For those interested in Vatican stamps or in religious topicals the collector will delight in collecting this area. It would be hard to find a richer or more fascinating field for the student of socio-political and philatelic history than this country, which spans from the most important years in the unification of the Italian peninsula to the new millennium. WHAT IS LISTED ON THIS WEBSITE IS ONLY A TINY FRACTION OF OUR STOCK and you are encouraged to contact us with details of stamps or covers you would like to buy. You will find Vatican's thematic issues in various segments of our website such as THEMATICS under POPES & SAINT and RELIGION; many religious subjects depicted on Vatican stamps can be found in the same THEMATICS category under PAINTINGS. Navigating our website will lead to interesting discoveries!!

Country: VATICAN
Condition: ** 2013 BEGINNING OF THE PONTIFICATE OF POPE FRANCIS SET OF 4 MAXIMUM CARDS
Description: 2 May 2013 -- BEGINNING OF THE PONTIFICATE OF POPE FRANCIS SET OF 4 MAXIMUM CARDS On 13 March 2013 at 19:06 white smoke rose from the chimney placed atop the Sistine Chapel where the Cardinal electors were meeting. Cardinal Tauran announced in Latin “Habemus Papam” and a short while later the 266th Successor of Peter, Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina, appeared at the Loggia of the Blessings. The new Bishop of Rome, who chose the name Francis, addressed his first words to the world: “Brothers and sisters, good evening! You know that it was the duty of the Conclave to give Rome a Bishop. It seems that my brother Cardinals have gone to the ends of the earth to get one... but here we are... I thank you for your welcome. The diocesan community of Rome now has its Bishop. Thank you!” Born in Buenos Aires on 17 December 1936, he entered the seminary on 11 March 1958 in the Society of Jesus. On 13 December 1969 he was ordained a priest, on 27 June 1992 he received episcopal ordination and on 21 February 2001 he was created a Cardinal by Pope John Paul II. 0
