Saint Valentine

St. Valentine is the patron saint of Valentine's Day. The holiday was named after him. He is the patron saint for lovers.

During the early days of the Roman empire christianity was discriminated against. Christian marriages were forbidden at that time. St. Valentine, then the Bishop of Rome, continued preach christianity and to perform christian marriages. He was imprisoned for disobeying the emperor. While in prison, he continued writing letters and even converted convicts in jail to christianity. He befriended  Julia, the daughter of the jailer. When the emperor Claudius discovered that he was still preaching christianity from his jail cell, he was executed (270A.D.). In his last letter to the jailer's daughter before his execution, he signed it "From your Valentine", which is where this holiday then got it's name.
