Virgin Of Orleans: Jeanne D'arc
By Edward Limonov Browse author
 
 

Once upon a time in French province of Lotaringe in her native village Domremy have lived French medivial girl called Jeanne d'Arc, because her father have family name Darc. At the age of 13, Jeanne started to hear voices and have the visions: she saw archangel Michael as well as Sainte-Margerite and Saint-Katherine. "Angels are very often show themselves to Christians, but they don't see angels, I saw them" would Jeanne say years latter during her trial at French city of Ruan. Archangel Michael and Sainte-Margerite with Sainte-Katherine have told Jeanne about grief in the kingdom of lilies - in suffering France, occupied by England.

"Daughter of God, you will take heir of King of France to Reims where he will be krowned," said they. In 1429 the voices have send Jeanne d'Arc to fulfill her mission.[I love that story so much, oh I love it, it is good pure angelic!] Paysant girl, she is leaving her village Domremy. She is wearing men's clothes, her hair is cutted short, she is accompanied by two knights. She goes to Shinon, where the Carl VII is staying, across all the country, occupied by English troops. On February 23 Jeanne was allowed to see Carl. She recognized him immediately, although he was wearing simple clothes. Jeanne goes to him and have pronounced message of my God - you are real heir of France and son of king." It was necessary message for Carl, because he had secret doubts about legitimacy of his birth. Jeanne d'Arc's virginity was attested by consilium of experienced women and widows, they all certify a fact of her virginity. Then whole bunch of theologists made conclusion that to turn Jeanne down will mean, "to turn down Saint Spirit and a help, sended by God." [Those medivial French have a sense of beautiful! Eve if, that story have been used by king's party to arouse French national feelings!]

Next we see Jeanne wearing white knight's clothes, on white horse with a white linen banner bearing pictures of Christ and angels with French lilies. In the head of French army Jeanne d'Arc have moved to help besieged Orleans. [It is so spectacular! That 17 years old paysant girl is most dear historical figure to me!]

Arrival of Jeanne d'Arc have aroused hysteria and enthusiasm amongst French troops, amongst inhabitants of Orleans, and fear amongst English troops. In those times God's messenger, virgin on the white horse was a shocking picture, it was a God's blow. Despite decision of military French council to not storm English fortifications builded around city of Orleans, Jeanne d'Arc called French troops to assault. She was following "her heavenly council." According to her "on May 8 will be accomplished matter of supreme importance and my blood will be shed."

It happens as she predicted. Jeanne d'Arc was wounded and the siege of Orleans was ended. In the head of French army Jeanne have concurred many French cities, she have captured English military Cheafs: Saffock and Talbott. Jeanne have liberated afterwads town of Trua, then Shalon and Reims. On July 16 King Carl VII was coronated in Reims cathedral, exactly as archangel and saintes have said to Jeanne years ago in the garden of her father, near the church. Mission of Jeanne d'Arc was accomplished. She wanted to go back to Domremy, her native village. But the king wanted to keep her as talisman, at his army. She decided to stay.

From that moment her military luck have turned back on her. May be she had lost her ability to inspire French army. She failed to take Paris, the capital, occupied by English. She was wounded when fighting at Paris gate. That failure have discouraged her followers and supporters greatly. She behaved as if she lost her magic power over the crowds. When in Compienne she was betrayed. In the moment when she made a sortie out of city walls, commandant have ordered to close the gates behind her. Jeanne was captured by Burgundian army, who's leaders have sold her to count Luxemburg, who, in his turn have sold her for 40 thousand francs to English troops. Jeanne d'Arc was accused of heresy and of witchcraft. She was transferred to city of Ruan for trial. Tribunal was created consisted of English and Normanic prelates, representatives of Inquisition and of delegates of Paris University. Under the chairmanship of Pierre Cochon, bishop of Bove. Cochen in French is pig.
