Germany: Council of Constance

Today I got two postcards: one from Germany and my first card from Iceland.

The card from Germany shows the Imperia and the building where the Council of Constance was held in Baden-Württemberg. The Council of Constance was held between 1414 and 1418. During this time 20000 persons lived in Constance. The main topic was the end of the Western Schism and the reunification of the church. 
I got this card a few weeks ago in a cover.

With a nice matching stamp:
600 years Council of Constance (issued 03-07-2014)
with a special postmark on the occasion of the jubilee

Thank You very much Nina for sending me the card in an envelope!
