Abstract The classic hagiography of Saint George is presented here by E. W. Brooks. Although originally written in Greek, the Syriac manuscripts of this text are important early witnesses. Brooks gives a critical edition of the Syriac accompanied by an annotated English translation of the Acts. A thorough explanation of the manuscript sources forms an introduction to the work. The Acts of Saint George stands in the tradition of early Christian devotional and historical records, and is a standard source for information about this formative saint.
