Night of the Dragon: The Saga of Saint George
An intricately woven tapestry of history, legend and folklore that propels us back into a mysterious time; alongside one of the most famous personages to wield a sword. The saga of the famous Roman war hero and dragon slayer, George, comes to life in an epic confrontational drama with the powerful despotic Emperor, Diocletian. More
In 297 A.D., at Rome’s apex of expansion and power, a hero emerges; George, loyal tribune to the Republic of Rome. George’s daring mission against Goth armies has caused him to be horribly wounded and left for dead. But, he is miraculously healed. When he appears alive before Emperor Diocletian, he is honored as an omen of great favor and is promoted to lead the Imperial Guard. Yet, soon after, George’s restored personal faith will make him an enemy of Rome, and the Empire itself, after Diocletian decrees an evil agenda.
With constant pressure from invading armies and economic turmoil, the Emperor slips into a state of madness. Declaring himself a living god, he enacts his draconian “Edicts of Intolerance” and wages a bloody campaign of religious genocide throughout the Empire.
Honored as a war hero, George and his men must accompany Diocletian’s army into Alexandria whereby they witness firsthand his maniacal mass slaughters and torture. George renounces allegiance to Rome and flees with his men to the African Sahara. During their long desert sojourn, George pits his warrior skills and nerves of steel against a ferocious river dragon to save a beautiful princess from certain death.
Word spreads of a Roman tribune named George who slays mighty dragons. Upon hearing this news, the Emperor dispatches his most powerful sorcerer to track down George and his rebels; even to the distant frontier of Britannia.
In the midst of chaotic persecutions, George encounters a fiery resistance fighter, Crocus, a German chieftain and eventual ally of the famous Constantine. They join forces in a revolution against the might of the Roman legions and duel against the Emperor’s fearsome wizard. He is a cunning and vicious opponent, conjuring hellish demons from the underworld into a host of terrifying dragons. Fighting for their lives, the battle sweeps across the Empire to the very heart of Rome itself.
This legendary hero, for over 1700 years, has remained a hallmark in cultures from the Middle East, Europe and America. His impact upon Western civilization will never be forgotten. The emblems, symbols, and writings representing this outstanding hero have become the standard for chivalry and honor.
