The Saint Germain Society
These five extraordinary Medallions were painted by Hippolyte Flandrin, a student and acolyte of Ingres. The Medallions stand at the center of a choir once known as ‘The Apostles’ Choir’. Following the completion of these Medallions in 1848, the choir took on the name it is known by today: ‘The Monks’ Choir’.
The four evangelists of the New Testament – Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John – are symbolized by ancient iconographs, these being The Angel, The Lion, the Bull, and the Eagle. In the very center is a fifth medallion which is the Lamb of God representing the Holy Mysteries.
Please consider joining the Saint Germain Society by sponsoring one of these unique and remarkable Medallions. A tax-deductible* donation of $5,000 entitles the sponsor to adopt one of the five extraordinary, and now recently restored, Evangelist Medallions.
