Collecting Postage Stamps With Religious Themes

Collecting postage stamps with a religious (or related) theme is a popular pastime enjoyed by individuals the world over.  The scope is surprisingly large; many religious holidays, such as Christmas and Easter, have been and continue to be commemorated on postage stamps. 

COROS, the (sadly now-defunct) Collectors Of Religion On Stamps, noted the following sub-categories, and of course there are more that could be added.
