Saint Matthew was an apostle and evangelist. The Latin Church celebrates his feast on 21 September and the Greek Church on 16 November 16.
St. Matthew is represented as an Evangelist by two iconographic elements, the quill and book, and the angel. Since the 4th century the Four Living Creatures of Ezekiel 1 and Rev. 4 have been associated with the Evangelists, the Angel-man representing St. Matthew in sacred art.
