This 1961 postage stamp celebrates the consecration, nine centuries earlier, of the Imperial Cathedral Basilica of the Blessed Virgin of the Assumption and Saint Stephen at Speyer — today the largest Romanesque church still standing.
Amazing what a difference 55 years can make.
Today there would be protests in the Bundestag, maybe even riots in the streets, if a stamp celebrating a Catholic milestone were to be mooted.

We're still on lockdown on the parliamentary estate — can't leave or move around. Everyone in good spirits though. No grumbling.
