We don't know much about St George except that he wasn't English. He was born to a Greek noble family in Palestine and served as a solider in the Roman Army.

Saint George. [Born Cappadocia, circa 270 AD. Died circa 303 AD]. Martyr, Patron Saint of England. I quote" He suffered at Lydda [Diospolis] in Palestine, where his tomb was shown. It is likely that he was a soldier. Cult was both ancient and widespread- Feasts celebrated in the East named him 'megalomartyros'. In the west he is named in the Martyrology of Jerome, and the Gregorian Sacramentry. The record & cult of St George considerably precede the 'Acts' with surviving texts in Greek, Latin, Armenian, Coptic, Syriac, Ethiopian and Turkish. An apocryphal Passion of St George existed and is mentioned by Pope Gelasius [492-496]. The famous story of St George & the Dragon is by no means primitive; becoming popular in thw west through 'The Golden Legend', translated and printed by William Caxton in the late 15th century. The story needs no retelling here - apart from the conclusion- if the people will believe in Jesus Christ the George gets rid of the monster. The King & his people agreed, 13,000 were bap .. ...

I've been asked by Radio Suffolk if we're doing any special ringing for St George's day this Wednesday. Problem is, I'm not aware of anything that members are doing, so if you are ringing for St George's Day, whether it is a peal, quarter or special general ringing, then please let me know ASAP so that I can tell our friends at the BBC what we're doing. I know we're all big fans of St Edmund here, but if we can get some publicity out of England's current patron saint, that would be fantastic!

(Apr 23rd) St George's Day. The legend of St George & the Dragon was brought back with the Crusaders during the 1300s - how George used his magic sword to kill a dragon to save the king’s daughter from being sacrificed to the fire-breathing beast. He was so revered by the Crusaders, that George was named Patron Saint of England in 1350 AD. For many years, English soldiers wore the Red Cross of St. George on a white background as a badge; and it remains a part of the British Union flag.
