1600th Anniversary of Saint Theodul or Saint Joder

Maria sent me this maxicard with The 80-rappen postage stamp on it. The picture is of the fourth 'Saint Joder' stamp published by the Postal Service in Vaduz. Bishop Saint Joder is shown with a bunch of grapes. 'Saint Joder is the Patron saint of farmers and vintners. The patron saint of Triesenberg, Saint Theodul (or Saint Joder) is once again appearing on a Liechtenstein postage stamp, in especially impressive form. Once again a worthy jubilee is a legitimate occasion for the issuance of a special stamp, this time in celebration of the 1600-year festival of this legendary saint. His history, going back to the year 381, is presented by a scholar, former Deacon Engelbert Bucher (Triesenberg). The horizontal stamp shows the Theodul statue from the parish church of Laterns. The sculpture, of about the year 1500, from the old Vorarlberg forest settlement indubitably belongs to the most beautiful visual images of the saint. The stamp was designed by Bruno Kaufmann and Walter Wachter.
