The late Middle Ages were marked by a deepening of pagan practices, which involved the Church. The trial of Joan of Arc epitomizes the Church's belligerent response to a phenomenon which it did not understand. The trial of Joan of Arc is a process of inquisition of faith. Joan of Arc was born in 1412 into a wealthy peasant family in Domremy.The deeds that spelled her doom transpired during 1 politically turbulent period in France. action. Following the death of Charles VI, under the terms of the Treaty of Troyes (1420), the King of England became the heir to the throne of France and the Dauphin Charles VII, was disinherited. France was, at the same time, divided between two factions: the Armagnacs who supported the disinherited prince, named "Prince of Bourges", and the Burgundians who supported the English, and at the trial of Joan dominated France. It is within this context that Joan heard His voice, and decided to obey Him. In 1428 and 1429, Joan met the King's representative in Vancouleur, who after making her undergo an exorcism, gave her an armed escort. On February 25, 1429, Prince Charles received her, when she was very reticent about her statements. She was then subjected to an interrogation by theologians from the University of Poitiers. Joan made predictions about the siege of Orleans, the coronation of Charles at Rheims, and his bid for Paris. Charles was convinced of the divinity of her mission, and the holiness of her voice, and allowed her to participate in military operations. Joan managed to be crowned the Dauphin to Reims for the summer of 1429. On May 13, 1430, the second prediction was fulfilled: the British lifted the siege of Orleans. However, the third prediction was not realized. Joan was captured in May 1430 by Bishop of Luxembourg . The Burgundians negotiated her capture with the British, and the English challenged her as a heretic in a court of inquisition. The public examination began on February 21, 1431 at the royal chapel of the castle of Rouen.
