Dear readers,

We would like to present an exceptional book on Joan of Arc.

This book, written by French Professor Colette Beaune, monitors Joan’s fate from her birth through her rehabilitation in 1456. It explains how she might have been viewed by her contemporaries, to what extent she met their expectations and what about her defied them: it depicts the traditional images of the virgin, shepherdess and her chosen knight, and primarily explains the sources of Joan’s political sympathies and her unshakeable loyalty to Charles VII. The result is a complex view of Joan of Arc and the world of her contemporaries.

Part of the Medieval Studies (Medievistika) Series.
