ABSTRACT
The article profiles French military leader Joan of Arc. The most famous woman writer of the Middle Ages, Christine de Pisan, wrote her last treatise about the most famous woman in the Middle Ages, Joan of Arc. "De Pisang Ditié de Jehanne d'Arc" was a paean to the French military leader whose victories were turning the tide of the Hundred Years' War and would lead to the crowning of Charles VII on July 17, 1429. Her account is also a contemporary recognition that Joan's mission was not an act of heresy but had come from God.
