JOAN OF ARC: A SELECTED BIBLIOGRAPHY

INTRODUCTION

Joan of Arc (French: Jeanne d'Arc) was born 6 January 1412 to a peasant family in north-eastern France. She claimed to have received visions from God instructing her to support the French claimant to the throne (Charles VII) by relieving France from English domination during the Hundred Years' War. Charles sent her to Orleans as part of a relief mission to that besieged city. The siege was lifted a scant nine days after her arrival.

Several additional French victories in rapid succession led to the coronation of Charles at Reims. On 23 May 1430, Joan was captured at Compiegne by the Burgundians (English allies) and transferred to English custody. She was put on trial by the pro-English Bishop of Beauvais (Pierre Cauchon) on a variety of charges, and was burned at the stake for heresy at the age of 19. Joan would later be declared a saint by the Roman Catholic Church.
