According to the book ‘Aurea of Jacobus de Vorazin‘, Saint Valentine was a priest of Rome. He believed in promoting love in the world. For him life was in love. But a king of this city, Claudius, did not like this thing of his. The king felt that love and marriage destroy both the intelligence and power of men. For this reason, soldiers and officers could not marry in his kingdom.
However, Saint Valentine opposed this order of King Claudius and inspired the Romans to love and marry. Not only this, he also arranged the marriages of many officers and soldiers. This angered the king and he hanged Saint Valentine on 14 February 269. Since that day every year this day is celebrated as the ‘Day of Love’.
