    The episode Saint George and the Dragon appended to the hagiography of Saint George was Eastern in origin, brought back with the Crusaders and retold with the courtly appurtenances belonging to the genre of Romance. The rider on the white horse in Revelation is a figure given to the first-century Christians as a sign of hope, and that by staying faithful they will be victorious amidst persecutions. The image of St George transfixing the dragon was given to Christians in later times, when they too were in need of hope. Though the Byzantine Roman Empire was Christian by the end of the first millennium, her lands were beset on all sides by non-Christians of various types: pagans, Muslims, and even Christian heretics like the Arians. St George appeared to the besieged Christians as the conquering hero to strengthen their confession.St George as the Victory-Bearer and Dragon-Slayercontinues to be a persistent image today for Christians, whether struggling with external or internal attack. The reason is two-fold. Firstly, the image of George and the Dragon is striking, and no doubt many iconographers enjoy painting the Saint in such an unusual pose; yet that wouldnt be reason enough if the miracle of St George were a myth. Therefore the second and most important reason why the image persists is because God continues to work miracles through St Georges intercession even today for those faithful Christians who turn to him for help.God raised you as his own gardener, O George,for you have gathered for yourself the sheaves of virtue.Having sown in tears, you now reap with joy;you shed your blood in combat and won Christ as your crown.Through your intercessions, forgiveness of sins is granted to all.+The Life of Great-Martyr George the Victory-Bearer(from OCA website)St George Resource Page from Mystagogy.This contains links to many stories of St George, including the other miracles worked by the Saint, apart from the slaying of the dragon.*
