Where It Began
There are various legends of St. Valentine and how Valentine’s Day came to be named for him. All the stories share a few common details. He was a Christian martyr in ancient Rome during the pre-Christian days of the Empire when the new religion was outlawed and its adherents punished by being thrown to the lions. Following is one of the origin stories of this highly celebrated holiday - Valentine’s Day.
History of Valentines Day
Valentine was a citizen of Rome, a teacher, and a Christian. He was imprisoned for his beliefs and sentenced to die by being thrown to the lions in the Coliseum. While he awaited his fate in the dungeon, he was visited everyday by a young girl. He tutored her in philosophy and they discussed the nature of divine love, and faith. With such an open dialogue their fondness for each other grew deep.
When the time of Valentine’s demise grew closer, the girl implored him to save himself. He responded, “What would be the value of my faith if I gave it up for my own convenience?”
On the day of his execution by lions, the girl came to him in his cell and asked him if he hated his tormentors. He answered, “We have been studying love, you and I. I will not give up my focus on love to hate anyone no matter what their actions toward me.” Tearfully the girl bade Valentine farewell as he went to his fate, but she took his teaching with her and to the rest of the world. It is for his emphasis on love that Valentine is honored by the holiday named for him.
By the Middle Ages, St. Valentine was one of the most popular Saints in England and France. The British Museum in London displays the oldest known greeting card in existence - a Valentine's Day Card from the 1400's.
