Good Period Story: Nathan the Womanizer (lit. "fornicator") and the Faithful Wife

Good period story of how Nathan, a notorious womanizer, is brought to repentance by the refusal of Hannah, a faithful wife of the merchant Moses. Note: use of Rabbi Akiva in his role as peace maker/generally positive influence.
