Joan of Arc: La Pucelle
Manchester University Press, Jan 9, 2007 - History - 368 pages
This important book offers a collection of documents on the historical figure Joan of Arc, who at the age of seventeen united France against England and at nineteen was put on trial and subsequently burned at the stake. Also known as La Pucelle, she is a figure well documented in literature, history and in popular culture. Nevertheless, this book will be the first to put many of the most important texts documenting her life together in a single volume, with some translated in modern English for the first time.
