The Year of Bible (2007)



On stamp (sheet) is 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: "Biblia, tu je, vse Svetu pismu, Stariga inu Noviga Testamenta, Slovenski, tolmaèena, skuzi Juria Dalmatina".
