Mysteries of the Rosary: Evangelists

The remaining eight images in this multimedia ceiling decoration at the south end include, around the outside perimeter of Glorious Mysteries, the symbols or emblems of the four Christian evangelists: Matthew (as man), Mark (as lion), Luke (as ox), and John (as eagle). Appropriated from one of the prophet Ezekiel’s visions, these symbols appeared a second time to John the Evangelist in a vision recounted in the Christian book of Revelation.
