Is there any mention in church history that St Luke wrote hid Gospel by way of St. Pau's preaching?  The reason I am asking is that I was wondering if St. Irenaeus refers to this in the beginning of vol. 3 of Against the Heresies. St. Irenaeus refers to the authors of the Gospels (see below; one sentence mentions St. Mark writing his Gospel from the preaching of St. Peter (which has become common Christian knowledge) & in a followiing sentence, I wonder if the Gospel of Luke is received on St. Luke or Paul's preaching?

Matthew also issued a written Gospel among the Hebrews in their own dialect, while Peter and Paul were preaching at Rome, and laying the foundations of the Church. After their departure, Mark, the disciple and interpreter of Peter, did also hand down to us in writing what had been preached by Peter. Luke also, the companion of Paul, recorded in a book the Gospel preached by him.
