This volume of original essays employs the latest tools of historical analysis, literary criticism, and feminist inquiry to reval why Joan of Arc was such an important figure.
"The strength of these essays is in the resistance they demonstrate to the thick layers of scholarship and tradition that have often only increased the distance between us and the truth about Joan." -- Speculum
"This is the essential modern starting point for Joan of Arc studies…a volume of immense variety and richness and the editors must be congratulated for doing the scholarly and general community such a service in regard to the evergreen topic of Joan the Maid." -- Parergon
