St. George Image History:

The legend of St. George slaying the dragon has dozens of iterations, but is deeply ingrained in Catholic theology and is extensively referenced throughout British history. Here the legend is pictorially immortalized in a painting by Raphael 1504-1506, which currently hangs in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
