Those terrible Middle Ages : debunking the myths by Régine Pernoud( Book )

43 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 806 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
The retrial of Joan of Arc; the evidence at the trial for her rehabilitation, 1450-1456 by Régine Pernoud( Book )

23 editions published between 1953 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 754 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

Hildegard of Bingen : inspired conscience of the twelfth century by Régine Pernoud( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 503 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."
