spacer The Story of St. George & the Dragon
April 23rd is St. George's Day, celebrated throughout England and many other countries around the world. According to legend St. George killed a dragon. St George’s sword was one of those special swords with a name – Ascalon. It’s also possible that this could have been the name of his lance, as one story says the dragon’s blood melted St George’s sword and so he killed the dragon with his lance.
The Golden Legend, printed by Caxton in 1483 was the first mass circulation of the legend which may have emerged centuries after St George’s death. The story is based in Libya near a town called Silene. S. Baring-Gould, a Devon priest in the nineteenth century with an interest in folklore and magical creatures, reproduced it here 500 years later. The myth of St George and the Dragon is widespread and it is unclear whether it actually has anything to do with the Christian martyr. What is clear is that history, fiction and faith have merged the stories to create the image we know today.
