In traditional iconography, the Evangelists (the writers of the four Gospels) are often depicted as angelic creatures, based on the four living creatures around the throne of God in the books of Ezekiel and Revelation.
- Saint Matthew, the Angel
- Saint Mark, the Lion
- Saint Luke, the Bull or Ox
- Saint John, the Eagle
These medallions were painted by St. Andrei Rublev for an illuminated Gospel book.
