Stamp commemorating the centenary of the Greek Catholic Diocese of Hajdudorog

Magyar Posta is issuing a special stamp to commemorate the centenary of the Greek Catholic Diocese of Hajdudorog.

The stamp design depicts the Weeping Icon of the Theotokos of the Greek Catholic Shrine in Mariapocs, Pantocrator by Adam Kisleghi Nagy, an extract from the Papal Bull ordering the establishment of the Greek Catholic Church of Hungary, and a detail from the iconostasis of the Greek Catholic church in Hajdudorog.

The four pictures are connected by the symbol of the Greek Catholic Church of Hungary and the composition has the same ornamental decoration which adorns the Papal Bull at the side.

On the first day cover the ceiling fresco of the church in Hajdudorog is shown, while the special postmark bears the silhouette of the church from an 1859 depiction.
