 Our Description

Saint Joan of Arc is known in history as the young warrior girl who lead armies of Frenchmen into battle against the English - but what is known of her divine call from God to do so? In this EWTN Home Video, historians piece together the Faith that lead to the deeds that sparked a turning point in France's history. With dramatic reenactments filmed on-location in France, England and the United States, this EWTN original docu-drama salutes Saint Joan of Arc as a warrior of men, and honors her as a Maid for God.

Patron Of: France, Imprisoned, Martyrs, Prisoners, Rape Victims, Soldiers

One of five children born to Jacques d'Arc and Isabelle Romee. Shepherdess. Mystic. From age 13 she received visions from Saint Margaret of Antioch, Saint Catherine of Alexandria, and Michael the Archangel.

In the early 15th century, England, in alliance with Burgundy, controlled most of what is modern France. In May 1428 Joan's visions told her to find the true king of France and help him reclaim his throne. She resisted for more than three years, but finally went to Charles VII in Chinon and told him of her visions. Carrying a banner that read "Jesus, Mary", she led troops from one battle to another. She was severely wounded, but her victories from 23 February 1429 to 23 May 1430 brought Charles VII to the throne. Captured by the Burgundians during the defence of Compiegne, she was sold to the English for 10 thousand francs. She was put on trial by an ecclesiastical court conducted by Cauchon, Bishop of Beauvais, a supporter of England, and was excuted as a heretic. In 1456 her case was re-tried, and Joan was acquitted (23 years too late).
