The George in his brief description is St George, Saint and Martyr, although this is the first time I have seen the suggestion that he was an immigrant to England.
Stephen was told by the Lord that if the Christians repented and demonstrated their contrition through processions, almsgiving, and Masses, such aid would be forthcoming: "Then they shall begin the battle, and I shall give them the help of Saint George, Saint Theodore, Saint Demetrius, and all the pilgrims who have died on the way to Jerusalem." (23) When this force appeared on the battlefield outside Antioch, Peter records that the crusaders were uncertain of its identity "until they realized that it was Christ's aid, just as the priest Stephen had predicted." A similar story is told by the monastic chronicler Robert of Rheims although here the priest who experienced the vision remains unnamed, and the help promised by Christ is not specified.
