On this day 588 years ago, dear Joan was in her second session of her terrifying, tedious trial. #youwillbevindicated
Second session: Thursday, February 22, 1431
At this session Jean Le Maistre the Vice-Inquisitor was finally present, after having tried to avoid attendance. He was not present at any of the following sessions until March 13, and he subsequently spent virtually no time on the case throughout the course of the trial.[note 2]
After some further sparring over the oath, Joan was questioned about her youth and activities in Domremy. She replied that she had learned to "spin [wool] and to sew", that she "confessed her sins once a year", sometimes more often, and "received the sacrament of the Eucharist at Easter". Then the questioning took a more serious turn as the issue of her visions was taken up.
She stated that at the age of twelve or thirteen, she "had a voice from God to help and guide me", but that at first she "was much afraid". She added that the voice was "seldom heard without a light" and that she "often heard the voice" when she came to France. She then related details of her journey from Domrémy, to Chinon, first applying to Robert de Baudricourt in Vaucouleurs for an escort and leaving that city wearing soldier's attire and equipped with a sword supplied by Baudricourt. ...

Naturally, we LOVE anything that portrays Joan of Arc "larger than life"; is for pure public enjoyment; and is artistically conceived and executed (whoops, bad word choice)!
This trifecta of public art success is gorgeously accomplished on St. Claude Avenue by Nola Mural Project--go see it and send us photos of yourself with Joan!!
"I biked down St. Claude Avenue on one of those August days that make you want to move someplace like Antartica or, ugh, Boston. That’s when I saw Saul working on what I would later learn was his portion of the Beauty Plus shop mural. When he finished his segment, several months later, it would be Joan of Arc imagining some science fiction battle involving robots, ninjas, a sphere-holding duck on a horse and a giant red squid (possibly) in a business suit.
But, on that August afternoon, it was just Joan of Arc, Saul and a few other artists working on their segment of the wall."
