Joan of Arc, Paperback / softback Book

Description

The story of one of the most remarkable women of the medieval world, as you have never read it beforeA French peasant girl who heard voices from God, Joan convinced the royal court of her divine calling and became a teenage warrior, leading an army to victory against the English.

Eventually captured and put on trial, she was denounced as a heretic and burned at the stake at the age of just nineteen.

Five hundred years later, she was recognised as a saint. Here, Joan and her world are brought vividly to life by acclaimed historian Helen Castor, taking us to the heart of a tumultuous and bloody moment in the fifteenth century and the short by astonishing life of an extraordinary woman.
