Jeanne D'arc






Upon her trial, as it is repeated by Chartier, she spoke with the utmost
simplicity and firmness of her visions: "Que souvent alloit a une belle
fontaine au pays de Lorraine, laquelle elle nommoit bonne fontaine aux
Fees Nostre Seigneur, at en icelluy lieu tous ceulx de pays quand ils
avoient fiebvre ils alloient pour recouvrer garison; et la alloit
souvent ladite Jehanne la Pucelle sous un grand arbre qui la fontaine
ombroit; et s'apparurent a elle Ste Katerine et Ste Marguerite qui lui
dirent qu'elle allast a ung Cappitaine qu'elles lui nommerent, laquelle
y alla sans prendre conge ni a pere ni a mere; lequel Cappitaine la
vestit en guise d'homme et l'armoit et lui ceint l'epee, et luy bailla
un escuyer et quatre varlets; et en ce point fut montee sur un bon
cheval; et en ce point vint aut Roy de France, et lui dit que du
Commandement de lui estoit venue a lui, et qu'elle le feroit le plus
grand Seigneur du Monde, et qu'il fut ordonne que tretou ceulx qui lui
desobeiroient fussent occis sans mercy, et que St Michel et plusieurs
anges lui avoient baille une Couronne moult riche pour lui."
