Summary:
To the great lords of her time as well as the politicians of

So to Warwick and Cauchon, her life has the somewhat artificial,

and certainly impersonal, quality of a play. Short scenes from

it are played out during the trial as they struggle to turn her simplicity

into heresy. But it is the glory of her life rather than the tragedy that

is the triumphant climax of the play. Period 1429-31
