Item description for The Retrial of Joan of Arc: The Evidence for her Vindication by Regine Pernoud, J. M. Cohen & Katherine Anne Porter...
Overview This book is the first English language book about the retrial of Joan of Arc: and clearly the best, based firmly on the testimonies given at the retrial. Written by the renowned French historian, Regine Pernoud, it uses extensive excerpts from the people who actually knew Joan, bringing to life this great woman and her powerful story. The whole tremendous and fascinating historical story is told here by her childhood playmates and relatives, her royal and noble friends, her confessor, her valet, her squires and heralds, and her fellow soldiers. Included also are excerpts from some of her enemies: their presence here lends even a more powerful authenticity to her story than if we had only heard from her friends and supporters. As we follow Pernoud through her remarkably clear, detailed tracing of this history told by living tongues, weaving the testimonies together, we begin to share with her the experience of those men who were making the investigation of Joan. Pernoud's method is direct and knowledgeable, and dedicated to the discovery and presentation of the mystical truth.

Interesting facts of a fair jury Feb 25, 2010
Fans of English Jurisprudence will not be pleased with yet another exposure of how crooked the English were. Fans of Joan will reinforced by the testimony of those who knew her. The Mystery remains as to why God intervened in France there being little doubt that saints and angels were involved in the military routs of the English and the crowning of the King of France. The author/historian does a good job of selecting materials for a short book-the wonder is that there is so much material available about this person. The reconstruction trial is described in fair detail and as fair as a proceeding could be. Joan was a willing girl-the comment most often ascribed concerning her from the many and varied witnesses. There is no discussion or perhaps no reason to discuss the later French Genocide in the Vendee region-a subject the Liberty, Fraternity, and Equality Boys avoid even now French Intellectuals are a bad joke.Pernod is not of the same French cloth that fell for Communism in spite of all evidence but a historian. I have been to France but once and came to interest in the subject when a local told me that Joan had once stayed in the area.
