|Notes:||Margarito (the sinner) was a celebrated dancer and courtesan who was converted to Christianity and baptized by the holy bishop Nonnus. She gave her wealth to the poor and, disguised as a male penitent, lived in strict penance in a cave in Jerusalem where she was known as the "beardless monk." Only after she died some four years later did they discover she was Pelagia the actress.|
