‘‘Thingless Names’? The St George Legend in Australia’ is an article by Andrew Lynch from The University of Western Australia. It appeared in the La Trobe Journal (No. 81, pp. 40-52) in Autumn 2008. The article briefly considers the impact of medievalism in Australia during the nineteenth century before focussing in particular on the many uses of the figure of St George, with or without the dragon, which can be found throughout Australia. A wide range of examples, including statues, stained glass windows, street names, poetry, beer commercials, St George Illawarra Dragons rugby club, are used, and there is a particular focus on St George’s Cathedral in Perth.
