Joan of Arc Goes on Trial

Joan of Arc was a French military leader and heroine who was canonized a saint in 1920, nearly 500 years after she was burned at the stake. Claiming to be inspired by religious visions, she organized the French resistance that forced the English to end their siege of Orléans in 1429 and led an army to Rheims, where she had the dauphin, Charles VII, crowned king. Captured and sold to the English by the Burgundians, she was later tried for heresy and executed. What was the "nullification trial"? More...

The Retrial of Joan of Arc, also known as the "nullification trial" or "rehabilitation trial", was a posthumous retrial of Joan of Arc authorized by Pope Callixtus

Too much time has passed & too much of the remaining evidence is contradictory for us to ever know much about the true Joan. Think

I think the English were embarrassed by the success of the young sprite and found the charge of heresy as the only way to quell admiration of her.

One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.

If I am not, may God put me there; and if I am, may God so keep me.

Of the love or hatred God has for the English, I know nothing, but I do know that they will all be thrown out of France, except those who die there.

If Mehrdad77 is posting from Iran, I must say that I admire your courage. Supporting a heroine of Christianity in Iran is not well tolerated. Please know we pray daily for all Christians living in countries ruled by despots.

St. Joan's trial was well documented, though there were reported attempts to alter the transcript. The Nullification Trial, 20 years later, called 115 witnesses. Whether their testimony had weight on the decision to nullify is unclear from the article; the decision was based on whether, by canon law, she was justifiably tried as a heretic for wearing men's clothing and whether exculpatory testimony had been considered. The court found that her need to protect herself from molestation and rape was sufficient reason to bypass the biblical prohibition and that her condemnation as a heretic was not in accord with canon law.

The church clergy persecuted many people for reasons that we find cruel and questionable by today's standards.

She sounds plain, simple, forceful and believable.

Sorry Joan, but you should have learned not to trust those Christians...
