Facets of St. George

In co-operation with the Royal Society of St. George and other organizations we are developing an educational programme, called ‘Facets of St. George’ which uses different aspects of St. George – man, saint, and myth – as a tool for exploring history, chivalry, and the value of legend and storytelling, and putting these in a modern context.

Facets of St. George is intended to be used as a training/educational/promotional aid – a joint address by the Royal Society and the Order to a church group, for example, might emphasize George’s patronage of England and his historical links to the persecuted church – and encourage the participants to support humanitarian aid in the Middle East, while a talk to a school might focus on the mythology of slaying the dragon, and what relevance the symbolism of such stories has to today’s society.
