Candles and candle-like devices served as humanity’s primary light source for centuries, before the advent of electric light. Some of the first people to use “candles” were the ancient Egyptians who used rush lights, or torches, made by soaking the pithy core of reeds in molten tallow. Later the Romans developed the wick candle. To aid nighttime travelers and to light homes and places of worship they used candles wicks.
