There has been some speculation that the idea of
Valentines stems from the ideals of the ancient Roman world. But there is no direct evidence to link to Lupercalia.
14 of February #onthisday in #History Saint Valentine of Rome was widely recognized in the third century as a Roman commemorated on the 14 of February for the reason being associated in the high middle ages with the tradition of courtship of love.
Historical records tend to tell that the commemoration on the 14 of February , is his name and was martyred and buried at a cemetery, Via Flaminia close to the Milvian bridge on the North part Rome that day. Because little is known about him in the year of 1969 the church removed his name from the general Roman calendar, however the Roman Catholic church still recognize him as a saint on the entry of February 14.
Here a quote on about recorded quote with the association of valentines day (1382) by Geoffrey Chaucer.[24] Chaucer wrote:
“For this was on seynt Volantynys day
Whan euery bryd comyth there to chese his make.”
This poem was written to honour the first anniversaries of the engagement between King Richard II of England and Anne of Bohemia, as a treaty was signed for marriage may 2 1381.
