Episode 4: Saint George and the Dragon Wading In

    • History

The legend of Saint George and the Dragon, and an account of his martyrdom in the Roman Empire that wold get him canonized as a saint in the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches. How much is history and how much is myth? George's story is one of archetypal good vs archetypal evil not unlike many others that came before it, down to the dragon and the spear. This story has inspired good for over well 1000 years, and will likely do the same for 1000s more.
