Summary expansion
Pocket Essential guide to the soldier saint of England, a man adopted or claimed by Germany, Hungary, Portugal and Malta and who has churches dedicated to him throughout Europe and Africa. Giles Morgan unravels myth, legend, fact and hearsay as he delves into the cult of the dragonslayer, drawing clear parallels between the battling hero and pre-Christian counterparts Perseus, Beowulf and Al-Khidr. Links between the Green Man of Wiccan lore and George the fertility symbol are explored and modern George iconry is investigated in full detail
