Our Saint Joan of Arc Plaque or Jeanne d’Arc (1412-1431) is a patron saint of France also known as “The Maid of Orleans” (French, La Pucelle d’Orléans). As depicted on this bronze plaque, Joan of Arc was burned at the stake as a heretic when she was only 19 years old, but declared a martyr in 1456, beatified in 1909, and canonized a saint in 1920. This the perfect gift for her feast day on May 30th. This bronze plaque is a great gift for her feast day (May 30th), birthday or confirmation. This will also be a great Christmas stocking stuffer!

The Passion of Joan of Arc
Joan of Arc has been depicted again and again in popular culture since the time of her death. Many famous writers (including Shakespeare and Mark Twain), filmmakers and composers have created works about her. The most memorable and moving modern depiction of the trial and execution (martyrdom) of Joan of Arc is the classic 1928 silent film directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer, The Passion of Joan of Arc (La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc) which was based on the actual court records from her trial. This solid bronze plaque is an ideal gift for a birthday, name day, first communion, or confirmation.
