Jeanne d'Arc (1412-1431) French saint and commander of the Hundred Years War. Burned at the stake as a heretic in Rouen 1431. The project offers everyone an exciting and authentic insight into a specific time in world history, giving historians, students, artists, filmmakers etc. as accurate sources of reference material as possible.
The basic principle of the project is as an open source. To produce a historical archive of Jeanne d'Arc and some sources for the Hundred Years' War. The specific goal is to provide a precise and balanced history with input from as many sources as possible, as well as maximum access to results for anyone who may be interested.
One of the motives for the creation of project Jeanne-darc.info is the belief that historical information should not be difficult to access and could only be seen by a privileged few lucky enough to have access to a particular museum / university.
It is a non-religious and non-political project that aims to bring medieval studies to a wider audience worldwide, accessible to anyone via the Internet.
