270年——罗马圣教徒瓦伦丁被处死,此日被后人定为“情人节”

瓦伦丁节,又称情人节,是欧美和大洋洲的一些国家的民族节日。此节日的来源甚多,但一般是以罗马圣教徒瓦伦丁被处死,后被定为“情人节”较为普通。

公元3世纪,罗马帝国出现全面危机,经济凋敝,统治阶级腐败,社会动荡不安,人民纷纷反抗。贵族阶级为维护其统治,残暴镇压民众和基督教徒。是时有一位教徒瓦伦丁,

被捕入狱。在狱中,他以坦诚之心打动了典狱长的女儿。他们相互爱慕,并得到典狱长女儿的照顾。统治阶级下令将他执行死刑。在临刑前,他给典狱长女儿写了一封长长的遗书,表明自己是无罪的。表明他光明磊落的心迹和对典狱长女儿深深眷恋。

公元270年2月14日,他被处死刑,后来,基督教徒为了纪念瓦伦丁为正义、为纯洁的爱而牺牲自己,将临刑的这一天定为“圣瓦伦节”,后人又改成“情人节”。


Valentine's Day, also called Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is an annual holiday celebrated on February 14. It originated as a Western Christian liturgical feast day honoring one or more early saints named Valentinus, and is recognized as a significant cultural and commercial celebration in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.

Several martyrdom stories associated with the various Valentines that were connected to February 14 were added to later martyrologies, including a popular hagiographical account of Saint Valentine of Rome which indicated he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire. According to legend, during his imprisonment, Saint Valentine healed the daughter of his jailer, Asterius, and before his execution, he wrote her a letter signed "Your Valentine" as a farewell.

The day first became associated with romantic love within the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the 14th century, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). In Europe, Saint Valentine's Keys are given to lovers "as a romantic symbol and an invitation to unlock the giver’s heart", as well as to children, in order to ward off epilepsy (called Saint Valentine's Malady). Valentine's Day symbols that are used today include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards.

Saint Valentine's Day is an official feast day in the Anglican Communion, as well as in the Lutheran Church. Many parts of the Eastern Orthodox Church also celebrate Saint Valentine's Day, albeit on July 6 and July 30, the former date in honor of the Roman presbyter Saint Valentine, and the latter date in honor of Hieromartyr Valentine, the Bishop of Interamna (modern Terni).
