St Agnes’ Eve was the day and night before the feast of St Agnes (21st January), who was the patron saint of virgins. The legend relates that a girl would be able to discover her future husband if she executed certain rituals on St Agnes’ Eve, permitting her future husband to appear in her dreams. This engraving is taken from William Holman Hunt’s 1857 painting, ‘’The Eve of St Agnes’’, inspired by John Keats’ poem of the same name. From “The Queen - an Illustrated Journal & Review - Christmas Number” from December 1861. The newspaper was published in London and was aimed at mainly upper class people who would attend court functions and society events.
