Abstract or Introduction
In spring 1895, the three trials of Oscar Wilde took place at the Central Criminal Court, the so-called "Old Bailey" . In the last two of them Wilde was accused of indecency with other males and the last trial ended with a sentence to two years of prison with hard labour for Wilde. The trials and the following imprisonment had a devastating effect on his personal and professional future life. In this paper I want to provide a brief outline of the events.
