Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Employs the latest analytic approaches to query why veterans of Joan's military campaigns were so impressed with her command, why so many contemporary churchmen and poets found her mission and voices credible, why she remains such a powerful symbol for modern politicians and literary and cinematic artists, why the Catholic Church decided to canonize her in 1920 despite the lingering doubts of its Devil's Advocates, and other mysteries surrounding the Maid of Orleans. The 16 essays are cross- referenced to form a unified reference. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
