Description

When you hear the words “Valentine’s Day”, what springs to mind? Romantic candlelit dinners? Secret admirers? Or violent Christian martyrdom? Well, go back far enough and it’s the latter that people were really celebrating on the 14th of February. 



H&S go back to the pagan-bashing Christian roots of the festival, and find out the beheadings, miracles and secret marriages behind the real(ish) Saint Valentine. Plus: why the Loch Ness Monster is definitely in hell.
