medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

The traditionally recognized author of the gospel of Luke needs no introduction to this list.  He is generally identified with the physician Luke who is St. Paul's companion at Colossians 4:14.  Late antique and medieval traditions place his apostolate in Alexandria in Egypt (the most frequently named venue), Bithynia, Byzantium, Thrace, Macedonia, Achaia, Dalmatia, Italy, and Gaul.  St. Jerome (_De viris illustribus_, 7) knew Luke's age at the time of his death (84) but not where he died.  According to the Coptic Orthodox Church, Luke was martyred at Rome by decapitation.  Medieval Greeks tended to think him martyred at Thebes in Boeotia.  Jerome (loc. cit.) reports that Luke's relics were translated in 357 to Constantinople, where they were placed in the Church of the Apostles.  The ninth-century martyrologist Usuard of Saint-Germain includes this translation in his elogium for today's feast; some Byzantine synaxary notices also make it part of this commemoration.

Luke's translation to Constantinople as depicted in an October calendar scene in the earlier fourteenth-century frescoes (betw. 1335 and 1350) in the narthex of church of the Holy Ascension at the Visoki Dečani monastery near Peć in, depending on one's view of the matter, either the Republic of Kosovo or Serbia's province of Kosovo and Metohija:

Since a reported inventio of 1177 it has been believed at Padua that a now headless skeleton kept in that city's basilica di Santa Giustina is that of Luke.  In 1998 a skull in Prague said to have been brought there as Luke's in the fourteenth century by the emperor Charles IV was taken to Padua and was found to be a "highly specific" fit with the uppermost vertebra of the skeleton, whose coffin had been opened to permit testing of various sorts.  Analysis of mitochondrial DNA from two of the teeth led to a pronouncement that the owner was three times more likely to have been a native of Syria than one of Greece.  Osteological examination of the skeleton showed to be of a man who had been aged somewhere between 70 and 85 when he died.  Carbon dating of the skeleton placed the man's death at some time between the years 130 and 400.  Carbon dating of bones of snakes endemic to western Europe that were found in the coffin placed the latter in the West in the fifth century.


Supplementing Gordon Plumb's post of yesterday, herewith some period-pertinent images of Luke, Apostle and Evangelist.  Though these do not include images of Luke's tetramorphic symbol that are essentially zoomorphic in nature, they do include a few images of the evangelist in which he is shown with human hands and feet but with the head -- and / or the wings -- of his celestial figure.  Reflecting different underlying textual sources for the construction of the tetramorph, that figure sometimes appears as a calf and sometimes as an ox.  Whereas it is easy to distinguish between a calf and an ox, many medieval versions of the symbol present an intermediate form that probably could best be described as a steer (or even as a young steer).  To avoid having to make such distinctions, I refer throughout to the bovid in question as Luke's "calf / ox".  Also not included are images of Luke painting the BVM or presenting a portrait of her that he is presumed to have painted.  But I have included one image showing on an easel in Luke's study a daub of the BVM making one all the more grateful for the existence of Antonello da Messina.
