Joan of Arc: A Spiritual Biography (Lives & Legacies)

Joan of Arc: A Spiritual Biography (Lives & Legacies) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written in a straight-forward, concise, and at times humorous manner, Nash-Marshall's Joan of Arc acquaints the reader with a historical character who became a legend during her lifetime legend. Joan is presented to us as a brave young girl who received a mission and who courageously used all of her faculties and gifts to accomplish it. Nash Marshall's approach is refreshingly honest. The narrative is centered on Joan, her mission, her work to fulfill it, her betrayal. The author gives us the facts and allows us readers to draw our own conclusions. Lovers of history will find the author's thesis on the connection between the resurgence of France, the betrayal of Joan, and the fall of Byzantium very interesting.

Synopsis:

Joan of Arc is one of the most enigmatic figures of history, and interest in the eccentric French maiden has never ceased since she was burnt on the stake in 1431. Siobhan Nash-Marshall tells her lively story, and interprets her life from the spiritual point of view. She traces Joan's life as the response to a vocation, which created unheard of personal attraction and power. From grown soldiers to the king of France the mighty of her time followed her orders, believable today only because Joan's trial is extraordinarily well documented.

Using the plentiful first-hand material on Joan's life, trial and death this book offers a sensitive approach to the spiritual persona of Joan within the framework of the religious thinking of her time. A new and inspiring focus is given to the core of Joan's struggle, the question of nationhood — the human longing for unity and reality of diversity.
