The Importance Of Trial Transcripts: Joan Of Arc

I’m currently reading a biography about Joan of Arc. The preface of the biography mentions the importance of trial transcripts to the recording of history. The book states: “Thanks to transcripts of her [Joan of Arc] trials, we know more details of her short life that we do of any other human being before her time (including Plato, or Alexander of Macedon, or Julius Caesar).” -From, “Joan Of Arc: Her Story” By: Pernoud & Clin

It should be noted that Joan of Arc was said to have been born circa 1412…Court reporters have been so instrumental to the recording of history! #ILoveCourtReporting
