When is St. George's Day?

History of St. George's Day

St. George was a cavalryman in the Roman army at Lydda, now in modern-day Israel. He was a Christian at a time when Rome was ruled by the emperor Diocletian, who was anti-Christian.

He refused to make sacrifices to the Roman gods. As a result, he was tortured over several years and eventually suffered a martyr's death, when he was beheaded in 303 AD.

He began to be venerated around the fifth century when a monastery was built and dedicated to him in Jerusalem.
