Joan of Arc Cultural Depictions

A new page titled Joan of Arc Cultural Depictions has been added at MaidOfHeaven.com. This page lists all of the most famous artistic creations that have been created to honor and represent St. Joan of Arc. The list contains entries in Literature, Theater, Paintings, Sculpture and Film. It is really amazing to see all the great artists that have attempted capture St. Joan and the wonderful art they have produced over the years. I know I enjoy browsing through them so I am sure this will become a very popular page that should help everyone better learn about St. Joan.
