This volume of original essays seeks to shed light on the mysteries of Joan of Arc, and to explain, why even in the 20th century, she remains such a potent symbol. Contributors here employ the latest tools of historical analysis, literary criticism, adn feminist inquiry to revewl why veterans of Joan's miltiray campaigns found her to be a remarkable commander; why so many of her contemporaries and mear-contemporaries alike, found it possible to accept the validity of her mission and her voices; why modern politicians and literary and cinematic artists have used her as the symbolic vehicle for their own visions; and why the Catholic Church finally decided to canonize her in 1920. The book contains a reflective epilogue by Regine Pernoud, long the fean of Joan scholars and former director of the Centre Jeanne d'Arc at Orleans.
