The retrial of Joan of Arc; the evidence at the trial for her rehabilitation, 1450-1456 by Régine Pernoud( Book )

26 editions published between 1953 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the first English language book about the retrial of Joan of Arc: and clearly the best, based firmly on the testimonies given at the retrial. Written by the renowned French historian, Regine Pernoud, it uses extensive excerpts from the people who actually knew Joan, bringing to life this great woman and her powerful story. The whole tremendous and fascinating historical story is told here by her childhood playmates and relatives, her royal and noble friends, her confessor, her valet, her squires and heralds, and her fellow soldiers. Included also are excerpts from some of her enemies: their presence here lends even a more powerful authenticity to her story than if we had only heard from her friends and supporters. As we follow Pernoud through her remarkably clear, detailed tracing of this history told by living tongues, weaving the testimonies together, we begin to share with her the experience of those men who were making the investigation of Joan. Pernoud's method is direct and knowledgeable, and dedicated to the discovery and presentation of the mystical truth."--Publisher's website
Those terrible Middle Ages : debunking the myths by Régine Pernoud( Book )

43 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As she examines the many misconceptions about the "Middle Ages", the renowned French historian, Regine Pernoud, gives the reader a refreshingly original perspective on many subjects, both historical (from the Inquisition and witchcraft trials to a comparison of Gothic and Renaissance creative inspiration) as well as eminently modern (from law and the place of women in society to the importance of history and tradition). Here are fascinating insights, based on Pernoud's sound knowledge and extensive experience as an archivist at the French National Archives. The book will be provocative for the general readers as well as a helpful resource for teachers

82 editions published between 1974 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For centuries, historians and novelists have portrayed the Knights Templar as avaricious and power-hungry villains. Indignant at the discrepancies between fact and fantasy, Pernoud draws a different portrait of these Christian warriors

70 editions published between 1959 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nouvelle version d'un album de 1959 où la qualité de l'illustration, pour une fois, n'est pas obtenue au détriment de celle du texte. Quatre parties cernent admirablement les divers aspects du personnage: Jeanne dans l'histoire - Jeanne et la légende - Jeanne et l'histoire - Sainte-Jeanne. L'auteur est une spécialiste de la question, ce qui ne nuit pas
Histoire de la bourgeoisie en France by Régine Pernoud( Book )

42 editions published between 1960 and 1981 in 4 languages and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Remarquable étude du rôle grandissant joué par cette classe sociale au cours des siècles. On voit que même si elle créa une société inhumaine régie par des lois devant lesquelles s'efface la personnalité, elle n'en est pas moins à l'origine du développement et de la prospérité économique qu'a connus la France. Période couverte: du XIe au XXe siècle. Ouvrage très solidement documenté. Nouvelle édition
Hildegard of Bingen : inspired conscience of the twelfth century by Régine Pernoud( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Benedictine cloistered nun visited by visions expressed in the beautiful illuminated manuscripts reproduced in this volume, the founder of a religious community, a musician and composer whose works have been rediscovered in our own time and are now enjoying a tremendous popularity, a writer and poet, a naturalist and healer, and a preacher and adviser to the Pope and his Bishops, Hildegard is essential to our understanding of the twelfth century. Medieval historian Regine Pernoud draws on Hildegard's work and on her correspondence with saints, popes, emperors, and commoners to create a portrait of a woman that Matthew Fox has called "one of the greatest artists and intellectuals the world has ever seen."

"Personnage attachant que celui--encore méconnu--de Christine de Pisan: à travers ses écrits, en vers et en prose, la fille de l'astrologue-astronome de Charles V née en 1365, n'hésite pas à revendiquer sa condition de femme; elle est sans doute "la première féministe" avant la lettre."--Description de l'éditeur
