Abstract: The figure of St. Paul has permeated in nearly all aspects of Maltese life since centuries ago. His providential landing in Malta in the year 60 A.D, after a shipwreck, has left an indelible mark on the character of the whole Island. This influence is even clearly reflected on Maltese stamps. Not less than 30 stamps in Maltese philately feature prominently St. Paul and 23 other stamps depict biblical personages, places or works of art closely connected with him. In this respect, Malta was the first country to issue a stamp commemorating St. Paul as early as 1899. [excerpt]
