Saint Joan of Arc : born January 6th, 1412, burned as a heretic, May 30th, 1431, canonised as a Saint, May 16th, 1920 by V Sackville-West( Book )

143 editions published between 1920 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 2,476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joan of Arc was fourteen when she first heard the voices. She was seventeen when she took command of the armies of France -- a peasant girl in the early fifteenth century in charge of a nation's forces. At nineteen she was captured by the British and tried as a witch by a church court. Before her twentieth birthday she was burned at the stake. In 1920 she was canonized a saint." "Vita Sackville-West fervently tells the story of one of history's most legendary women. Relying on the detailed records from her trial, Sackville-West reconstructs the scenes of the story: the slow growth of Joan's convictions, the great victories, and the pathos of her death.

The eagle and the dove, a study in contrasts: St. Teresa of Avila, St. Therese of Lisieux by V Sackville-West( Book )

65 editions published between 1943 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lives of these two saints with similar names could hardly be more contrasting. St. Teresa, reformer of the Carmelites, 'busy woman and great saint', endured the religious mania of sixteenth-century Spain and lived in a state of near perpetual ecstasy. Thérèse, on the other hand, lived the quiet life of a nun in late-nineteenth-century France, was meek, devout and perhaps rather dim. She became a saint of the common people, largely because of the ordinariness of her life (excepting the odd vision)
