Lenski from the University of Colorado.
The annual, pagan celebration was called the Lupercalia and was held annually on February 15. The festivities were very popular until the 5th century AD, more than 150 years after Emperor Constantine imposed Christianity on the entire Roman Empire.
The Lupercalia was “clearly a very popular holiday, even in an environment where new Christians were trying to have it banned,” says Noel Lenski. “So there is a reason why Christians appropriated these festivities. The Roman Church then dedicated the festival to Saint Valentine.
