Valentine, (in latin : Valentinus), pope for thirty or forty days in 827, was a Roman by birth, and, according to the Liber Pontificalis, was first made a deacon by Paschal I (817-824). The entries in the Liber Pontificalis at this date are contemporary, added shortly after the death of each pope, and, so, although reflecting biases of the authors, they are at least reasonably accurate.

VALENTINE (332 words)
His parents, who were as good as they were noble, brought Valentine up in a truly Christian manner, and he grew up to be a serious young man devoted to prayer and his studies.
Clergy and nobles alike raised the cry: "Valentine, the most holy archdeacon, is worthy of the Apostolic See; Valentine must be made pope!" Then they streamed out of the Lateran and hurried to the Church of St. Mary Major where they found Valentine at prayer.
In Valentine's election there had been no contest, but it is noted that the nobles like the clergy, took part in the affair.
St. Valentine (1337 words)
Valentine was a priest or bishop, and possibly a physician as well, during the third century in Rome.
Valentine slips containing a girl’s name to be courted would be worn by a boy on the arm of his shirt—this may be the origin of "wearing your heart on your sleeve" meaning being obvious about your love for someone.
Valentine is often pictured in icons as a bishop with a crippled or epileptic child at his feet, a bishop with a rooster nearby, a bishop refusing to adore an idol, a bishop being beheaded, a bishop overlooking a betrothed couple, and a priest giving sight to a blind girl.
