The Aberdeen Bestiary on the dragon from a medieval Latin course taught by Laura Gibbs at the University of Oklahoma.
"The dragon's strength lies not in its teeth but its tail, as the Devil, deprived of his strength, deceives with lies those whom he draws to him."
Bishop Jocelyn of Wells in Somerset
BBC: "Villagers prepare to slay dragon" about an upcoming twice-a-century dragon-slaying reenactment by the citizens of Wells in Somerset. The event commemorates the 13th century dragon killer Jocelyn, Bishop of Wells. The theory is that omitting the celebration would bring the dragon back to life. (October 31, 2001)
The Worminster Dragon Mosaic. Website by Kate Rattray documents a 2002 mosaic depicting the story of the Somerset dragon and his defeat by Jocelyn, Bishop of Wells. Rattray and local residents (mostly schoolchildren) collaborated in designing and implementing the mosaic. The website includes photos of the mosaic, and her essay The Story of the Making of the Worminster Dragon Mosaic.

Saint Margaret and the Dragon
13c. Middle English verse life of St. Margaret of Antioch, edited with notes by Sherry L. Reames. From it:
"Holye mayde Margarete loked her besyde.Reames has written an introduction to the life which is without question the best general overview of the Margaret legend on the web, and the English cult in particular.
"St. Margaret is also one of the most common subjects for wall paintings in England; some churches have her entire life - as many as twenty scenes - adorning their walls."
1913 Catholic Encyclopedia entry by J. Macrory.
"Curiously enough this virgin has been widely venerated for many centuries as a special patron of women who are pregnant."Surely this is because giving birth is not unlike a dragon splitting open to reveal a saint! And virgins often have charge of childbirth, witness the Greek goddess Artemis.
Nineteen images of St. Margaret emerging from the dragon from the National Library of the Netherlands (Icon class 11H(GEORGE)41).
St. Margaret of Antioch Church: Lower Halstow, Kent has a good page on St. Margaret.
"Which St. Margaret is the Patron of this Parish?" Maryland parish debates St. Margaret of Scotland and of Antioch, with most correspondents favoring the Scottish one, and employing friendly Scottish nationalism ("St. Margaret's of Antioch? . . . Come along, Melissa Moss, have you lost all of your Celtic?").
Good entry by Katherine I. Rabenstein, Saint Patrick's Church, Washington, D.C.
