Jarett Quirk

The ancient Romans may also be responsible for the name of our modern day of love. Emperor Claudius II executed two men — both named Valentine — on Feb. 14 of different years in the 3rd century A.D. Their martyrdom was honored by the Catholic Church with the celebration of St. Valentine's Day.

 The rose was an icon of veneration in the pre-Christian era, and was used in  ancient Rome  to symbolize devotion to the  goddess Venus . Following the  Christianization of Rome  under the emperor  Constantine , the rose became identified with the  Virgin Mary . [1]  The rose symbol eventually led to the creation of the  rosary  and other devotional prayers in Christianity. [2]
