St. George{



The Great Martyr George

Carol J. Boarman


21 x 25 1/2"


St. George is venerated as the deliverer of prisoners and protector of the poor, as well as the patron of agriculture, of herds, flocks, and shepherds to whom, according to tradition, he gave help during his life and after death. This icon depicts a posthumous miracle of St. George taken from the record of his life. The record relates that in a lake in Libya there lived a terrible dragon which the local inhabitants worshipped and to whom they sacrificed their children. When it came the turn of the local king and the daughter was awaiting her terrible death, St. George appeared with the words "in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit" and struck down the dragon.
