Abstract

When Jeanne of Arc’s triumphant march takes place, it is celebrated in enthusiastic tones by another woman, Christine de Pizan, who composed her Ditié giving way to her exultation. A different tone can be found in the writings by the contemporary theologians Jean Gerson and Jacques Gélu, justifying Jeanne’s formidable undertaking: they examine the strange case and consider it admissible. Pizan’s passion had previously created a City of Ladies and praised the experience of holy martyrs, whose very same voice Jeanne will hear. Two discrete precepts follow two ideas of justice –one human, the other divine– articulated in different styles of writing.
