Wow, rough day for St. George.

– St George is put in Prison
– St George is Tortured on a Table
– St George is Tortured in a Cauldron
– St George is Tortured Tied to a Cross
– St George Survives Poison
– St George is Tortured Between Two Wheels
– St George is Tied between Two Posts and Sawn in Half
– St George is Dragged by Horses
– St George is Beheaded

Damn. Gotta work hard to be a megalo-martyr.

(I think the beheading is kind of redundant after the sawing in half thing, but hats off to the Romans for thoroughness.)


(This is from the altarpiece of St George at the V&A Museum in London.)
