Publisher’s Statement: “This book is not merely an account of a life that was cut short; its focus is also on Joan’s history, which in 1431 had just begun, and which, the author shows, was influenced just as much by the transformation in Anglo-French relations and by internal politics, issues of freedom and republicanism, and by changes in society regarding secularisation and belief, as by our response to the central issue of Joan’s voices themselves….Author Timothy Wilson-Smith was a writer and lecturer and was assistant master at Eton College for 36 years, where he taught History, English and Art History.”
