Hand painted icon of Saint George who according to tradition was a soldier in the Roman Army.  His parents were Christians of Greek origin. His father, Gerontius, was a Cappadocian serving in the Roman army. His mother, Polychronia, was a Christian from the city of Lod  in Palestine. Saint George was a soldier of Cappadocian Greek and Palestinian origins, member of the Praetorian Guard for Roman emperor Diaocletian, who was sentenced to death for refusing to recant his Christian faith. He became one of the most venerated saints and martyrs in Christianity, and he has been especially venerated as a military saint since the Crusades.
