Description

The holy, glorious and right-victorious Great-martyr and Trophy-bearer George!

The holy, glorious and right-victorious Great-martyr and Trophy-bearer George was a Christian Roman soldier killed under Diocletian at the beginning of the fourth century. His father was Gerontius, a Greek Orthodox Christian from Cappadocia, and an official in the Roman army. His mother, Polychronia was a Christian from Roman Palestine. Eastern Orthodox depictions of Saint George slaying a dragon often include the image of the young maiden who looks on from a distance.

What does the dragon represent?

The standard iconographic interpretation of the image icon is that the dragon represents both Satan and the monster from his life story. The image, as interpreted through the language of the Byzantine art of iconography, is an image of the martyrdom of the Saint.
