Four Evangalists. This page provides a wonderful example of the inventiveness of the artists who worked on the Book of Kells. There are many representations of the four evangelists and their symbols throughout the Book. Three individual pages are devoted entirely to collective images of them, including this page. The evangelists are represented symbolically by a man (St. Matthew), a lion (St. Mark), a calf (St. Luke), and an eagle (St. John).
