Abstract

"Joan of Arc (1412-1431) is a challenging figure in the history of spirituality. This collection explores multiple facets of Joan's life of prayer, action, and suffering. Two-thirds of the essays focus on the Maid in her own time, providing new insights into how Joan and others understood her spirituality. The later chapters study Joan's formative influence upon modern women. Taken together, these essays offer new perspectives on the heroism of Joan's original way of sanctity."--BOOK JACKET.
