*St. George, the famous dragon slayer, was one of the most respected saints. He was probably born in Cappadocia. The story dates back to the 15th century and could be even older from the Russian city of Novgorod. Since the Middle Ages, he has been revered throughout Europe as one of the most popular Christian saints. Depending on the old stories, George came on his travels to the country of Silena. There, a dragon lived in a lake. According to old stories, St. George saved a princess who was about to be sacrificed to the dragon.
Byzantine art existed from the 4th to the 15th century.
