Joan of Arc is captured by Burgundians at Compiegne who will sell her to the British. She will face Pierre Cauchon, the French bishop of Beauvais who has allied himself with the English.

This means that his motivations for dealing with her are more political than religious: discrediting Joan as a heretic will, by implication, undermine the claim of Charles VII on the French throne.

The English formally accuse her of being a witch and eventually condemn her for heresy, publicly burning her to death in the city of Rouen in a year.
