Lovely Valentine Events at The Odd Macabre
The Feast of Saint Valentine has been observed since 496, when Saint Valentine, who ministered to persecuted Christians, was martyred and buried on February 14 in Rome.
From the High Middle Ages his Saints’ Day has been associated with a tradition of courtly love — a medieval European literary conception of love that emphasized nobility and chivalry. Medieval literature is filled with examples of knights setting out on adventures and performing various deeds or services for ladies because of their “courtly love”. This kind of love is originally a literary fiction created for the entertainment of the nobility, but as time passed, these ideas about love changed and attracted a larger audience.
