Written in 1953 as France was recovering from the Nazi occupation of WWII, L’Alouette examines collaboration and resistance – and what constitutes heresy. The divinely inspired warrior Joan of Arc has been imprisoned; the setting is her 15th century trial with flashbacks to her life. Both the English occupiers and Catholic bishops are strongly motivated to condemn her.
