Pierre Cauchon, the Bishop of Beauvais was the lead prosecutor of that English cynicocratical body which found Joan of Arc guilty of heresy in 1431 and condemned her to death by burning at the stake. The English were trying to capture the French throne for the infant, Henry VI.
Joan, despite being a volgivagant young girl, was able to lead a French army to secure the thorn of France for Charles VII. She was accidentally captured during a retreat. During her lifetime, no one came to her rescue. She died May 30, 1431.
Pope Callixtus III found her not guilty of the heresy charges in 1456 and declared her a martyr. The isangelous Joan was canonized in 1920.
