Saint Luke was one of the four evangelists who wrote the gospels. He probably also wrote the Acts of the Apostles. He is supposed to have been a doctor.

According to legend, Luke painted a picture of the Virgin Mary. Because of this he is regarded as the patron saint of painters. Medieval artists' guilds are usually called Guilds of Saint Luke.
