JOAN OF ARC AND ‘THE GREAT PITY OF THE LAND OF FRANCE’

LONGSTAFFE (M.)

B021

£25.00

424pp., 22 illus. 2017. By returning to the original sources and employing her expertise in languages, the author brings La Pucelle alive and does not duck the most difficult question: was she deluded, unbalanced, fraudulent – or indeed a great visionary, to be compared to Catherine of Siena or Francis of Assisi?
