58- St. George, Murderer of Dragons

When crying “God for Harry, England, and Saint George,” do you know the story of the saint Shakespeare invokes? In this episode, literary historian Liz Rodriguez and comic actress Nicole Keating get to the bottom of the many stories revolving around the patron saint of England. Though often depicted as a knight in shining armor who slayed a dragon to rescue a princess, there’s more to George’s sainthood than meets the eye. Questions answered in this episode include: What are St. George’s connections to the Middle East? How did torture, conversion, and the Crusades figure into his legend? What is England’s special connection to the saint? Learn about religion, myth-making, and saintly celebration with the Rude Tudors. Contact at, Facebook, Twitter, and [email protected]
