The Story of Joan of Arc

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Andrew Lang

Narrated By: TimothyFR

Publisher: LibriVox

Date: January 2017

Duration: 2 hours 6 minutes

Summary:

Joan of Arc is a folk heroine of France and a Roman Catholic saint. Claiming divine guidance, she led the French army to several important victories during the Hundred Years' War, which paved the way for the coronation of Charles VII of France. Captured by her enemies, she was sold to the English and put on trial for charges of "insubordination and heterodoxy".

She was burned at the stake for heresy when she was 19 years old. Twenty-five years after her execution, an inquisitorial court examined the trial, pronounced her innocent, and declared her a martyr. Joan of Arc was beatified in 1909 and canonized in 1920. She is one of the patron saints of France. Most of what is known today of her story comes from the detailed court records of her trials.

    This was my first book from audio books and I am so glad that I found this app. The app is easy to use and this book was narrated nicely. It was basically a short story but long enough for my drive and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I learned information that I had never heard before. Listening to this book was a nice way to try out audio books app. Thank you for allowing us to listen to it for free.
