BALLESTEROS-ALVARO, Antonio Manuel  y  BALLESTEROS-RETUERTO, Sara. “TU SELLO” 430th Anniversary of the Order of San Juan de Dios in Palencia. Temperamentvm [online]. 2022, vol.18, e14121.  Epub 17-Abr-2023. ISSN 1699-6011.


St. Juan de Dios was born in Portugal in 1495. In the Royal Monastery of Santa María de Guadalupe, in Cáceres, he was trained in the care of the sick. He returns to Granada and begins to dedicate himself to the care of the poor homeless and the sick, establishing a hospital for such purposes. He died on March 8, 1550. The first postage stamp commemorating St. Juan de Dios was issued in Portugal in 1949 on the IV Centenary of his death.


To carry out the analysis of “ TU SELLO “, the iconographic-iconological method of Panofsky has been used.


The “TU SELLO” issued in commemoration of the “430th Anniversary of the Order of St. Juan de Dios in Palencia” is presented. The design is based on the sculptural group created by Óscar Aragón, which was inaugurated on December 4, 2017, on the 425th anniversary of the presence of the Order in Palencia. In the stamp appears an arch that symbolizes the door of the hospital of St. Juan de Dios in Palencia and, on the other side, two figures that represent St. Juan de Dios, embracing and helping, in a gesture of protection, another figure that is an allegorical representation of the disease.


The use of personalized stamps is a way of making known, through philately, events, characters, relevant facts, or ephemeris that otherwise would not be reflected in the postage stamp, given the limited and demanding policy of philatelist services from different countries to include in their issues every relevant event that may occur over the course of a year. This has been, and no other, the objective of issuing this “TU SELLO” tribute to the 430th Anniversary of the Order of St. Juan de Dios in Palencia.
