St. George and Al-Khadir: A Case of Middle Eastern Convergence
St. George is one of the most popular saints in Eastern Orthodoxy, and widely recognized as the preeminent saint of Christian warfare. In Anatolia and the Levant, however, following Muslum conquest, St. George became a point of contact between Islam and Christianity, as he converged with al-Khadr, the popular Muslim *wali*. This talk examines the reasons for and consequences of this convergence.
