The early history of Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is named after Valentine’s Day, a Catholic priest who lived in Rome in the third century. There are many stories about Valentine’s and over time these stories have become the legend we know today.
At the time of St. Valentine’s life, many Romans converted to Christianity, but Emperor Claudius II was a pagan and created strict laws about what Christians could do. Claudio believed that Roman soldiers should be fully consecrated to Rome and passed a law that prevented them from marrying. Valentine began marrying these soldiers in secret Christian ceremonies and this was the beginning of his reputation for believing in the importance of love.

Finally, Valentine was discovered and imprisoned for his crimes against Claudius. While incarcerated, Valentine took charge of her fellow captives and her blind daughter. The legend says that Valentine cured the girl’s blindness and that her last act before being executed was to write a love message signed by her “Valentine”. Valentine was executed on February 14, 270.

HISTORY OF VALENTINE’S DAY

How did Valentine’s Day develop?

It was not until more than 200 years after the February 14 was proclaimed Valentine’s Day. At that time, Rome had converted to Christianity and the Catholic Church was determined to eradicate any remaining paganism. A ritual of pagan fertility took place in February of each year and the Pope abolished this festival and proclaimed February 14 on Valentine’s Day, thus establishing this holiday in the Catholic calendar of the saints.

The poet Chaucer in the Middle Ages was the first to link Saint Valentine with romantic love. It was the beginning of the tradition of courtly love, a ritual of expression of love and admiration, usually in secret. This custom has spread throughout Europe and the stories have grown around a Superior Court of Love, where the judges rule on issues related to love on February 14 of each year. Historians believe that these meetings were, in fact, meetings in which people read love poetry and played flirtation games.

Valentine’s symbols

The practice of sending messages of love has become people who send special letters expressing their affection. These cards were beautiful creations crafted by the sender and designed individually to show how much they liked the recipient. The letters usually contain sentimental verses, proclaiming the beauty of the recipient and how much they were loved.

The Valentine’s Day cards were decorated with pictures of Cupid, hearts, and flowers and lined with lace and ribbon. These images are still used today to symbolize love and are recognized throughout the world.
