The story of Joan of Arc has continued to elicit an extraordinary range of reactions throughout almost six centuries since her death. Joan of Arc was a visionary and a holy woman who claimed to be guided by God through the medium of angels and saints. Joan's enemies also tried to use her military achievements against her, denying that God would really condone such bloodshed and warfare, or even encourage the people of France to abandon their oaths to support the Treaty of Troyes. The capture and death of Joan of Arc had little direct impact on English fortunes during the war, which had reached deadlock. The accomplishments of Joan of Arc are remarkable, given that she had to overcome the significant cultural and social prejudices of a medieval society that valued men more highly than women.
