  2. Brigham Young University Broadcasting is interested in licensing two images found on this website for use in our production of a docudrama about the life of Joan of Arc.
    The first image is titled, “The Porte De France on 25 October 2012” and was posted by Arch Ritter on October 26, 2012. The second image is titled “Orleans, 1429” and was posted by Arch Ritter on October 27, 2012. Do you own these images? If so, what’s the best way for us to seek permission to use them in our program?
    Best,
    Heidi

      Good Morning:
      You are welcome to use the first photo, which I took. (You might credit me if you wish!)
      The second I “borrowed” from somewhere on the web, so I can not provide any permission on that!
      Best wishes,
      Arch Ritter

    Absolutely wonderful!!…. I suffered a major heart attack in late January 2016. Two weeks later…home from recuperation, I inexplicably found that one particular day- I’d literally spent most of the morning, all day into night..some 12 hours in all reading everything I could about Jehanne D’Arc. Being exceptionally good at on-line research, I quickly discovered that mostly in the last decade..’modernists’ were attempting to ‘re-write’ who Jehanne was. I took umbrage to this and delved into her history every day! Then, something happened.. Sent home from my 2nd heart attack in 4 years- essentially to die, and being in congestive heart failure.. on the 6th week, examined by my Cardiologist.. not only was my heart not deteriorating further, but I was improving! I attribute this to Jehanne. I have recognized that I have a ‘mission’ to complete before my time here ends. I believe you both might be able to help and would love to start an ‘e-mail dialogue’ where in I might be able to ‘lead up’ to a stunning revelation that you might help me bring to the world.. if it is meant to be. If you are interested, please e-mail and I will begin the story of this revelation.
    Sincerely,
    Stephen

    Hello Joan & Arch –

    Thank you for your travelogue of Joan. You two are pretty much lived out the top rung on my bucket list! I have read every book imaginable on Joan and intend to follow her footsteps through France as you both have. I would like to learn more about your preparation and itinerary for your trip!

    Joan and Arch –
    Thank you for your website and journey. I’m interested in doing this journey as well. Are there any guidebooks that you know of? I just finished walking for two weeks on the El Camino de Santiago (chemin St. Jacques de Compostelle). This was, of course no problem, with many places to rest and to stay overnight, from albergues to hotels. What about Joan of Arc’s “Way?” Is there any such infrastructure? Even a path? I would do this on foot if possible. You can email me too!

    Thanks!
    Mike Shaw
