Vatican II and Gospels' authors?


#1

How did Vatican II address the authors of the Gospels?

I cannot recall how and to what degree Vatican II named the authors of the Gospels.

THANKS!

"The Church has always and everywhere held and continues to hold that the four Gospels are of apostolic origin. For what the Apostles preached in fulfillment of the commission of Christ, afterwards they themselves and apostolic men, under the inspiration of the divine Spirit, handed on to us in writing: the foundation of faith, namely, the fourfold Gospel, according to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.(1)"

Gospels have never changed. Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John.
