Description

Icon with Saint George

At this icon there is the representation of Saint George, a soldier of Cappadocian Greek origins, member of the Praetorian Guard for Roman emperor Diocletian, who was sentenced to death for refusing to recant his Christian faith. He became one of the most venerated saints and megalo-martyrs in Christianity. His father died for the faith when George was fourteen, and his mother returned with George to her homeland. A few years later, George’s mother died. George travelled to the capital Nicomedia and joined the Roman army. George was executed by decapitation on 23 April 303. A witness of his suffering convinced Empress Alexandra of Rome to become a Christian as well, so she joined George in martyrdom. His body was returned to Lydda for burial, where Christians soon came to honour him as a martyr.
