This saint, one of the most popular, dared to be a Christian in the Roman army. A popular myth says he slew a dragon just before a princess was about to be sacrificed to it thus St. George is frequently depicted on a horse with a lance and dragon. He is seen as a defender of good over evil. St. George was tortured and beheaded in 303. He is famous for healing and is the patron saint of the poor, shepherds, and warriors.
