Joan of Arc on the Anniversary of her Canonisation

Joan of Arc, burned at the stake on May 30, 1431, at the age of 18, was one of the Medieval World’s most remarkable characters. A fearless warrior and a committed patriot, she was also deeply religious. On the centenary of her canonisation in 1920, we explore her personality, and the complexities of her brief career, trial, condemnation and subsequent rehabilitation.
