Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 30

She was very well examined,
before people came to believe in her.
Before everyone knew she had been
sent to the King by God, there were
examiniations before learned men.
Tested as to the truth about her vision.
But it was found in history records that
she was destined for just this mission.

Original in French

Et bien esté examinée
A, ains que l'on l'ait voulu croire,
Devant clers et sages menée
Pour ensercher se chose voire
Disoit, ainçois qu'il fust notoire
Que Dieu l'eust vers le roy tramise.
Mais on a trouvé en histoire
Qu'à ce faire elle estoit commise;1
