Marcus u. Lucas

Marcus : Lausanne Cathedral : Lausanne, CH

One day, I'm going to take a course in Gothic architecture and the art and iconography that goes into these magnificent buildings. I managed to find Mark and Luke, but no Matthew and John. Maybe the next time I visit Lausanne, I'll succeed! In the meantime, here's what I want to know: are each of the apostles represented in cathedrals by their horoscope? Is that why Mark is a lion and Luke is a cow?
