Joan of Arc: Her Life, Times, and Martyrdom: This small-group workshop will consider the life and times, visions and martyrdom of Joan of Arc as presented in the English translation of her trial for heresy entitled Joan of Arc: In Her Own Words. The English translation of Joan’s trial provides insight into this courageous and faithful teenager’s life as she seeks to follow the Holy Spirit’s inner guidance while rebutting the accusations of powerful, political leaders who attack her. We will first look at the Hundred Years War and civil strife in France, then read and discuss a straightforward translation of her trial, and finally watch and discuss the 1928 silent French film “The Passion of Joan of Arc.” This class will be facilitated by Dr. Kathy Hall on March 5, 12, 19, 26, April 2, and 9.
