Since I had visited Rouen, France, in 2004, and spent time there exploring Joan of Arc sites (where was executed), I was most interested in this seminar. Wow, Dr. Durand did an amazing amount of work researching her story and presented her life and death plus the historical aspects that were important. A journey through what led up the start of her military leadership at a young age was complicated but the speaker parsed out the key players and their parts in the conflict. Maps and illustrations were most informative in addition to photos of present day sites from her life. Loved it.
Lots of historical information about France before and after Joan of Arc. And about her historical importance.
This was very informative with outstanding visuals that made a complicated subject clear. Bravo!
Dr. Durand's presentation on Joan of Arc was comprehensive and beautifully illustrated. Its was a complicated time in history, and he made it approachable and digestible, as well as presenting Joan as a fascinating individual and myth.
