600th Anniversary of the Birth of Joan of Arc


Recommended reading

On the 600th anniversary of the birth of the "Maid" I had the privilege of visiting the site of her martyrdom at Rouen.

I recommend this book as especially worthy of your attention. Regine Pernoud, an eminent historian, began her task of researching this book as an unbelieving skeptic and, after exhaustive examination of the records of the French archives became a convinced and ardent advocate of the sterling integrity and authentic heroism of Sainte Jeanne d'Arc.

Beautifully written and an impeccable history. Purchasing information through Barnes and Noble available at this link.

Please check back at this blog in coming days for photos and information about St Joan and France.
