2010 Christmas stamp by Austria

This year's Christmas stamp shows part of an antiphonal of the Cistercian monastery at Rein in Styria. The choral manuscript with precious initials dates from the second half of the 15th century and once served as a liturgical book for the hourly prayers of the local monks. The stamp shows the "classical scene" of the birth of Christ in the artistic interpretation of the early Renaissance.
