EDIT
Saint Joan
AIRED:
The story of a peasant girl who at age 17 presents herself to the uncrowned Charles VII, the Dauphin, and tells him heavenly voices have commanded her to lead the French forces to victory over an invading English Army. In two years, Joan sees her sovereign crowned, is betrayed by fanatically religious French clergy who think her either demented or possessed by the devil and is turned over to English jailers and ultimately tried by a church court and condemned to death at the stake.moreless

      • In Shaw's lengthy version of the story of the Maid of Orleans, there is an epilogue in which, years later, Joan converses with her captors, judges and jailers and all agree upon her innocence but their ghosts are horrified at her suggestion that she return again.

        "0 God that madest this beautiful
        earth, when will it be
        ready to receive Thy saints?
        How long, 0 Lord, how long?"
