Quotation Formulas

In the Cathedral of Chartres near Paris, the rose window in the south serves as my introduction to my next series.

I regret that I was unable to locate a better image of the five lancet windows. The middle window is the Virgin Mary and Child. To her right and left are the Four Evangelists. What is most interesting is that Matthew is on the shoulder of the Prophet Isaiah, Luke on the shoulder of the Prophet Jeremiah while John is on the shoulder of the Prophet Ezekiel and Mark is the shoulder of the Prophet Daniel.
