Joan Of Arc: Trial And Association With The Hundred Years' War
9 pages in length. Considered to be one of the most influential women in the history of the world, Joan of Arc was not initially perceived as such during the period she was tried and convicted for witchcraft and heresy by being burned at the stake. Looking back on her life's contributions, it is clear to see that she was one of the first women to boldly and courageously stand up for what she believed was right, in spite of the fact that all around her who held the power construed her actions as being witchery, betrayal and unorthodox. It turns out that after the trial which ultimately took her life, none of this was the truth, but rather that Joan was a person who stood strong for that in which she believed, confident in her choices and willing to give completely of her existence in exchange for her stalwart virtue.
