The Trial Of Joan Of Arc (eBook)
de W.S. Scott
Sobre o livro
This volume presents the most complete and accurate account of the 1431 Inquisition-style trial that culminated in Joan's death. Conducted in Rouen by two judges, a prosecutor, and some sixty assessors, the proceedings were taken down verbatim by a notary and his two assistants. The French heroine's life, character, visions, and motives spring to vivid life as she answers her accusers in her own words. A brief history of Joan's mission, military victories, and capture complements this remarkable historical resource, which is further enhanced by period woodcuts.
