In the 18th century, a new declaration of Valentine’s Day was issued. It would replace the earlier ‘Lupercalia’; a Roman fertility feast. The story tells of a bowl in which all the names of unmarried women were collected.
It was up to the unmarried men to grab a name from it. Hoppakee, match made in heaven according to the Romans. Pope Gelasius, I ended the feast. He turned it into a celebration of Saint Valentine, whoever that might be. However, the letter in which he wrote was never found. The message in which he forbade the Roman feast did, however.
The love traditions as we know them now only came around 1900. In a myth, Saint Valentine would have played with flowers for cupid and married. In another tale, priest Valentine would have secretly married young men.
This was forbidden by the emperor to strengthen his army; men in love were not fighters. Another version tells of the eve of Valentine’s execution. He then wrote the only real Valentine’s card to the blind daughter of his jailer, signed ‘From your Valentine’.
On it, the daughter could see again and read the sender. The oldest Valentine’s card that is still intact comes from 1400 and can be read in the British Museum.
