Here are 3 medieval facts about Valentine’s Day
- The origin of Valentine’s Day was not all hearts & flowers. A priest had his ownheart ripped from his holy chest. And the only flowers were those placed upon his grave.
- In 3rd century Rome, Emperor Claudius II decreed that men with no wives or children made for better soldiers. Then, he outlawed marriage for soldiers.
- A priest, Father Valentine, saw this as a grave injustice. He defied Claudius’ ruling, and performed secret marriage ceremonies for soldiers. When Claudius uncovered the deception, he ordered that Father Valentine be tortured & killed.
