George feast day, April 23 The image of George most familiar to us today, the saint dressed in a white tunic bedecked with a red cross, astride his stallion, and skewering a dragon as he rescues a fair maiden, depends more on a late medieval and Renaissance ideal of this miles Christi knight of Christ than on his legend in its earlier forms, in which the dragon and the maiden play no part and George’s role is one of verbal jousting and violent suffering rather than knightly derring-do.
George the martyr was allegedly born in the region of Cappadocia now central Turkey and executed by the Persians or Romans traditions differ in Diospolis Lydda , on the road from Jerusalem to Joppa later Jaffa, now Tel Aviv-Yafo , in the early fourth century. Unlike many other saints in this collection, however, nothing truly historical is known of George and the figure in the legends may be a composite of more than one original saint; only the archeological certainty of an early cult suggests that there probably was a martyr of this name, who was perhaps a soldier.
George by a Bishop Tiberinus; it is dated by some in the mid-fourth century but by others in the sixth. Certainly by the sixth century the cult’s influence had spread not only into Syria, Arabia, Egypt, and Byzantium, but also as far as southern Gaul. Various pilgrims from the early sixth century on recorded their visits to the site, among them the Frankish bishop Arculf, who visited in the late seventh century, according to the Irish hagiographer Adomnan in his De locis sanctis, a guide for pilgrims to the Holy Land written near the end of the century.

The History of World War I through sheet music By Bruce Updegrove Edited By Eleanor Jenitis Bruce used to teach 11th grade American history and embraced the challenge of trying to bring his students into the history of America and raise their awareness as to who we are. Bruce amazingly and cleverly walked us through the war vis-a-vis the sheet music covers and titles, a fascinating walk.
While the war was from , the United States becomes fully involved in Bruce pointed out that during the war there wasn’t really that much to do at home, and thus many people tried to learn to play an instrument, with piano always being a favorite. So the people depended upon sheet music to keep the entertainment going. Sheet music, its covers and titles, became a reflection of American sentiment on the war. Bruce added that the woman could actually have paid the publisher for the advertisement.
