Joan of Arc - Her very name inspires a sense of heroism and bravery. But the story of one of Europe's most valiant soldiers is plagued with intrigue and deception, and the brightness of her character obscured by charges of witchcraft and more. How did a peasant girl wind up leading a revolution? How did an illiterate pen letters to the leading men of her day? How was Joan transformed from a pious farm girl to a heretical witch, and ultimately into a Christian saint and martyr? And what does her life, mission, and example have to teach us today, especially about what it means to human?
