God, outcasts

The Maid of Orleans

Happy 600th birthday, my beloved Joan of Arc. A teenage peasant girl who changed history. Visionary, warrior, saint, cross-dresser, burned to death by her own church.

Read the trial transcripts sometime. She was brilliant and a bit snarky.

Jehanne, I salute you.

(Thanks to [personal profile] jehanne1431 who reminded me that it was 600 years.)
