The Story of Joan of Arc

(4.6 stars; 312 reviews)

Joan of Arc is a folk heroine of France and a Roman Catholic saint. Claiming divine guidance, she led the French army to several important victories during the Hundred Years' War, which paved the way for the coronation of Charles VII of France. Captured by her enemies, she was sold to the English and put on trial for charges of "insubordination and heterodoxy". She was burned at the stake for heresy when she was 19 years old. Twenty-five years after her execution, an inquisitorial court examined the trial, pronounced her innocent, and declared her a martyr. Joan of Arc was beatified in 1909 and canonized in 1920. She is one of the patron saints of France. Most of what is known today of her story comes from the detailed court records of her trials. (Summary by timothyFR) (2 hr 6 min)

My mom is a history freak, so this (to her!) is great! Also I'm studying Joan Of Arc for my home-school work.

This was wonderful. I found so many things that were quite a su

I love Joan of Arc. I admire her strength, courage and tenacity to look fear in the face and put her trust in God. I believe that we all have a mission and purpose in life-we don’t all have saints and Angels visiting us-but God whispers to our hearts and if we listen we will be drawn to the work he has for each of us to do. This account of Joan gives me the desire to follow His will-whatever the outcome. For anyone interested, BYU TV created an excellent documentary on the life and mission of Joan of Arc. #byutv https://www.byutv.org/player/98102eb7-69d9-45e5-9322-2e9d7284c3a6

(4.5 stars)

Joan of arx was a Eurocentric chauvinist who fought against undocumented immigration because she was raycyst. She even unlawfully lead an army to fight against these poor undocumented immigrants, and killed a bunch of them. She was a psychopath who thought she talked to God, when she was illiterate. She abused animals by riding on horses backs, as opposed to driving in eco friendly electric vehicles. Thank the Goddess the French are more enlightened now, and are letting immigrants into their country so they can burn her churches. France has magnanimous abandoned their France for French policy.

This is a story everyone should be familiar with. Joan's work was truly guided by the hand of God, if for no other reason than a couple hundred years later the France came to the assistance of the fledgling country of America in it's struggle against the British dominance. We might could then, thank Joan, for the spread of freedom across the globe. Excellent reader.

very interesting way to learn about the life of Joan of Arc . who will ever really know what parts of her life story were true or just made up or exaggerated. I feel that what ever voices she heard were true to her and did what she felt was right. Very brave lady . Jackie of Kent

Excellent book and well read.

A concise and very interesting account of the life of Joan of Arc. The story is well told. A book for believers and unbelievers alike. Based on the accounts of the witnesses of the historical events.
