      "In the pleasant hobby of philately, collecting postage stamps with a religious theme began early and the practice has now spread so much that it has become one of the large fields in thematic collecting. The theme of RELIGION is very wide including, among a seemingly endless list, subjects such as ; Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other Faiths; the Bible (Old and New Testaments); Churches, Cathedrals and other Sacred Buildings; The Holy Land; Church and Religious History; Stained Glass Windows; Paintings and Religious Art; Madonna and Child; Illuminated Manuscripts; Methodism; Popes and Papal Visits; Vatican; Christmas and Easter and many more themes within themes.", Peter Greening, The Guild of St Gabriel

    7. Ted Tokarski, Member of The Guild of St Gabriel (cc)

      "The Gabriel movement was commenced in Germany, during the Thirties, by two Franciscan friars, Clemens Anheuser and Gabriel Schmidt, former missionaries in Brazil. Their extensive knowledge of stamps featuring religious subjects led to them linking up with like-minded stamps collectors and founding the Guild of St. Gabriel. In 1953, under the leadership of the Austrian Guild, an umbrella organisation for the whole movement was founded in Salzburg. Titled 'The World Union of St. Gabriel' its objective is to keep the various National Guilds in touch with each other. This is accomplished by the exchange of their Bulletins, and the World Union Congress held every four years. A member of the British Guild was the General Secretary for twelve years and subsequently President for four. The first Congress was held in 1960 in Munich, the latest in Belgium (Ghent - Gent) in 2004. The next will be held in Slovakia (Nitre) in 2008."
