The first mention of St George in England was by the Venerable Bede (673-735). Alfred the Great mentions them in his will and several churches, as far back as the early 10th century, are dedicated to St George.
In 1222 The Synod of Oxford declared St. George’s Day a feast day in the kingdom of England.
The most famous legend of Saint George is of him slaying a dragon. In the Middle Ages the dragon was commonly used to represent the Devil. The slaying of the dragon by St George was first credited to him in the twelfth century, long after his death. It is therefore likely that the many stories connected with St George’s name are fictitious.
