Jean De Arc

Watching this movie by BYU tv, was very enlightening. The concept of direct divine guidance and teaching, to produce an eiyuu, a warrior hero, and a savior is very interesting. Given the ancient saints and those who covenanted with Judaism’ Old God, Jehovah, it is hard to determine their life details. The records are either distorted or lacking sufficient details.

Yet records of Jean De Arc and Socrates, seem rather well formed.

The Japanese also did an interesting fictional account of her, although they chose not to create a story about Jean De Arc. The female warrior used a sword and had aesthetics and background very similar to Jean De Arc, but they ended up making it about a change up of another legend. It was a great false trail, however, when I was trying to guess what historical person they were modeling that character after.

So in short, Jean was an illiterate peasant of 19 years, who somehow learned martial techniques at such a level that she routinely beat in sparring professional knights and warriors. She successfully convinced old dog military officers and aristocrats to follow her in lifting the siege on Orleans. She successfully won open field battles. She overcame the English army using psychology and pristinity of Christian rituals such as the Eucharist on the Sabbath Day. She sieged a town and overcame it, fighting personally on the front lines. She arranged artillery and siege works via planning. All of this apparently came to her via her visions and voices, in the 4 years before she was called to serve. She first met Archangel Michael and other spirits, when she was about 14-15. 4 years of direct neutral education from spirits and angels, bypassing the visual linguistic method of learning.

It’s nice to know that Charles Martel and Charles the Great (Charlemagne), had such a strong connection to God, even if the clergy of the medieval world at the time had lost touch.

The story and its details also gives a unique and useful glimpse into how God communicates with humans and how humans react. They pretty much react as one would expect, for the normals. While a person, especially a realist military noble, would not believe Voices from Heaven or anyone claiming there of, they can respect results and they can learn to read an aura. When you beat them in H2H combat, they can recognize and learn from that, even if they reject or refuse to understand the spiritual lesson. The fact that Jean had the physical capability in martial arts combined with strategic vision and miraculous changes on the battlefield, paints a great story and provides much better detail than say the Old Testament concerning Moses or Abraham. Human nature stays the same, so we can triangulate based on certainties and sources.

Jean ran into court politics and was betrayed outside of a city, prevented from entering the city, after she had held the rearguard to ensure her cavalry and troops entered the city safely. The gates were then closed, and she was captured by the English [Correction, captured by Burgundians, which are SouthEastern French near Switzerland and Italy]. The English army then ransomed her for some 10,000 gold crowns or ducats, to a Catholic Bishop, that politically sided with the English and got chased out of France as a result of Jean winning battles. He had a grudge, and set up his own private Inquisition. Sort of the reverse of the FBI vs HRC right now. The Bishop and his hand picked judges, interrogated her, to pick up on some political or religious flaw that they could use against her. After 4 months of trying to break her, she was burned at the stake for various legal excuses and the stamp of the evil Bishop. Evil comes in a lot of forms. It took them that long to find something to accuse her of heresy for. And what of Charles, the King of France? They didn’t see it worth much to attempt to rescue her or ransom her. Bishops were pretty rich back then, 10,000 gold coins is probably more than Charles had. To frame it another way, nobles earned around 100-1000 gold ducats every year. Most of that money goes into weapons and armor, and buying food for war horses and troops.

[Reading further into the history, I was glad to know that Jean’s military compatriots, including allied dukes and counts, did try to siege the city she was held in, but they failed numerous times. It’s good to know that not all the French loyal to Charles the 7th, abandoned her as a sacrifice.]

    I did tell people that in this war, there would be no neutrals. The two sides would enforce that, not me. Although I was talking in the context of domestic American traitors vs domestic Americans who preferred to ignore the civil conflict.

    Mario might be the next Joan of Arc.

    Yes, no neutrals as in the Spanish or Algerian civil wars.

    CURTIS LEMAY KNEW WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT: How to Start a Clash of Civilizations: If the Islamic State wants to renew the Crusades by attacking churches and killing priests, Catholic France won’t run from the fight. “The logic may be unnerving, but it is crystal clear. For Le Pen and Europeans starved for leadership consistent with patterns adhered to for centuries on end, it is Islam’s would-be holy warriors who have invited a defensive Crusade, and the time has come to give it to them.”
