Joan of Arc: Woman, Warrior Witch

10th March2020: Joan of Arc: Woman, WarriorWitch, Professor Anne Curry, University of Southampton

For two brief years, 1429-1431, Joan of Arc playedan important role in restoring French fortunes against England in the HundredYears War before being tried for heresy and being burned at the stake inRouen. Once the English had been driven out of France in the 1450s, Joanwas posthumously re-tried and exonerated. Yet it was not until the latenineteenth century that a process for her canonisation began, and not until1920 that she was declared a saint. This talk will look at the many personas ofJoan, both in her life time and beyond. Anne Curry is Professor of MedievalHistory at the University of Southampton and a past president of the HistoricalAssociation.
