Saint valentine By Nick Charland, john harris, Andrew herbert

Saint valentine was born on 176 AD in terni, Italy. Much of Saint valentines life is not reliably known.

In 1969 the church removed saint Gatineau from the holy roman calendar because little was know about him.

One legend about saint valentine is that he was but under house arrest with judge asterius while there they were discussing faith. The judge asked saint valentine about his faith and told him to put it to the test. The test was to restore the judges blind daughter. So from there saint valentine put his hand on the child's eyes and restored her vision.

Saint valentine is known as the patron saint of affianced couples, against fainting, beekeepers, happy marriages, love, plague, and epilepsy.

He died on February 14 273 AD in Rome, Italy. The tradition of Valentine's Day is believed to have originated from the pagan customs of the Third Century or Fourth Century BCE.
