The paper provides a review of the relevant literature to determine how Joan of Arc's spiritual and military leadership helped to inspire a demoralized king and nation to rise up against the English. The paper illustrates the profound impact she had inspite of her lack of any other credentials besides her conviction that she was divinely inspired. The paper emphasizes how Joan of Arc truly believed that she heard the voices of angels and saints and she believed it with sufficient conviction that she was able to convince others of her destiny.
