The pagan heritage of St George

Mackley, J. S. (2011) The pagan heritage of St George. Paper presented to: International Medieval Congress (IMC), University of Leeds, 2011-07-13.

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)
Abstract: This paper considers the argument that St George is a vague saint who should not have achieved such an importance status and his survival must be because his name has been attached to an older tradition. Thus the paper follows the roots of traditions associated with St George through the writings of religion and mythology, before tracing them down through English folklore to some surprising literary descendants.
