The opera Thaïs by Massenet is loosely based on the background of Saint Thaïs. Massenet focuses on Athanaël, who considers it his mission to convert the sensual beautiful courtesan to Christianity. As the opera progresses and the two characters' journeys intersect, Thaïs becomes a devout believer while Athanaël's own faith is lost in his love of her.
