55That needs must light on this ingratitude. And now you toss flowers in the path of Caesar, who comes in triumph over Pompey’s defeated sons? Go home!

  The Caristia on the following day, was a family feast to celebrate harmony between the living and the benevolent dead: the Lares. The Lupercalia, then, is a purification ritual. The representatives of Romulus and Remus are ceremonially bloodied and then cleansed. Its survival can be partially credited to Augustus, who rebuilt the Lupercal in the first century B. C. E., thus giving the celebration a boost. It continued to be observed until C. E., when Pope Gelasius I changed the day to the Feast of the Purification of the Virgin Mary.

So what is this strange Roman festival? Plutarch discusses the Lupercalia, held February 13thth, in his “Life of Romulus,” the first of his Twelve describes it there as the Romans celebrated it early in the Republic, as a feast of purification, but also as a memorial to the she-wolf that suckled Romulus and Remus after their exposure in the wilderness. The feast of the Lupercal was festival that was a tribute to the god of fertility (our Valentine's Day is on the 14th of the month of February, no coincidence), and it is also a communal event.
