Since her death at the age of nineteen in 1431, Joan of Arc has maintained a remarkable hold on our collective imagination. She was a teenager of astonishing common sense and a national heroine who led men in to battle as a courageous warrior. Yet she was also abandoned by the king whose coronation she secured, betrayed by her countrymen, and sold to the enemy. In this meticulously researched landmark biography, Donald Spoto captures her astonishing life and the times in which she lived. Neither wife nor nun, queen nor noblewoman, philosopher nor stateswoman, Joan of Arc demonstrates that everyone who follows their heart has the power to change history.
Donald Spoto has written two dozen bestselling biographies of film and theater stars—among them Grace Kelly, Alfred Hitchcock, Tennessee Williams, Ingrid Bergman, and Marilyn Monroe. Born in Westchester County, near New York City, he now lives in Denmark.
"A magnificent introduction to one of the most misunderstood and controversial of all the saints." James Martin, SJ
“Donald Spoto is one of the best biographers in the world today. “
“Spoto’s new biography is like bringing reality TV into a 15th century courtroom . . .a stunning miscarriage of justice.”
“A magnificent introduction to one of the most misunderstood and controversial of all the saints.”
“A worthy contribution to a renewed understanding of a figure who still speaks to today’s realities.”
“[An] engaging, and at times gripping, biography.”
“I have never read a biography that affected me so deeply as a Catholic or as a woman.”
“Thought provoking and very readable… Joan’s story is significant and should be retold….”
“…a lively, accessible book …with a cogent discussion of faith, mystery and early church politics.”
“[Spoto] approaches his subject with the sophistication of a historian and the admiration of a true believer.”
“Spoto is a surprisingly apt biographer for [Joan] ….”
