Virtual books: images only - Lindisfarne Gospels: St Luke  f. 137v
Copyright © The British Library Board

The third evangelist, St Luke, is shown accompanied by his traditional symbol, a calf or young ox. He is seated in much the same pose as that adopted for St Matthew and, like him, is heavily bearded though portrayed as a much younger man.
