Saint George the Great Martyr, with Scenes from His Life, Full Body - Hand Painted Icon

[Model: HND_st-8937]

Byzantine Hand Painted Icon of Saint George, the Great Martyr, with Scenes from His Life.


Saint George came from Cappadocia and was a member of the Roman Army. He showed great boldness and courage and for this, he gained the attention of the Emperor Diocletian, but he could not escape the persecutions that Christians faced in those years. Saint George did not deny his faith and was sentenced to beheading.

His remains, together with that of his mother, were taken to Lod in Israel where he was buried. Eventually, the Crusaders took them to the West.

Saint George is the patron saint of the Greek Army and England. From the 12th century onwards, he is usually depicted slaying the dragon, a depiction that carries many different approaches.


Apolytikion

Liberator of captives, defender of the poor, physician of the sick, and champion of kings, O trophy-bearer, Great Martyr George, intercede with Christ God that our souls be saved.
