         assumed to be authors of the Gospels in the New Testament:

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    a "publisher of glad tidings;" a missionary preacher of the
    gospel (Eph. 4:11). This title is applied to Philip (Acts 21:8),
    who appears to have gone from city to city preaching the word
    (8:4, 40). Judging from the case of Philip, evangelists had
    neither the authority of an apostle, nor the gift of prophecy,
    nor the responsibility of pastoral supervision over a portion of
    the flock. They were itinerant preachers, having it as their
    special function to carry the gospel to places where it was
    previously unknown. The writers of the four Gospels are known as
    the Evangelists.
