The life of "San Jorge"

Very little and confused is the information we have of Jorge de Capadocia´s life. We know he was born in this region in Asia Minor probably in 279 A.N. He received the Baptism and was given the name of Jorge, which means man of the country. His mother, a very religious person taught him the Christian doctrine and encouraged him to study Theology, Greek and Latin. His father called Geroncio was a military man. When he died, Jorge and his mother went to Palestina to live and there he joined the military service following his paternal vocation. Very young he acceded to the comicial tribune degree, that is chosen by the people.

At that time the East Roman Empire had Diocleciano as an Emperor and the capital was Nicomedia, where Jorge lived. When his mother died, he sold his personal property and gave the money to the poor.


At that time, the Emperor  announces an edict of pursuit of Christians which is on display in the imperial palace. Jorge tears it and makes a public profession of his faith, that´s why he is imprisoned and subjected to different tortures from which he got unharmed until finally he was beheade, in all probability in the year 303. His body, taken by his serveant Pasícrates, was taken to Lydda where he was buried at emperor Constantine´s times and moved to a temple built in his honour and his relics were spread out throughout the Christian orb.
