Saint George the dragon slayer4


Thank you!

All Christian churches remember Saint George on 23rd April. St. George was a martyr of the early fourth century, in the time of persecution of Christians under the Roman Emperor Diocletian. Over the centuries, legends formed around him. The most important of these is preserved in the “Legend aurea”, a collection of stories of the 12th St. Century
