Intent on seducing a Christian man, Honorius, who lives in seclusion in the desert, Myrrhina, a noblewoman and famed temptress, travels to Honorius’s retreat in pursuit of him.

La Sainte Courtisane was nearly completed by Oscar Wilde before he was imprisoned, but the author mistakenly left his only copy of the manuscript in a taxicab, and was never able to recover it. The current version of the play is an incomplete fragment of that lost manuscript.
