115. Joan of Arc in the Church of Recquignies

There is no giant with Joan of Arc although she could be one, as herold of the village of Domremy in the Lorrainne. But here she is not in Domrémy and not in the Lorraine, but in the church of Rocquignies. Roquignies is in the Aisne but one kilometer away from Avesnois and sometimes on the roads around you do not no if you are in the Aisne or in the North. Joan of Arc is also the name of many french private schools. It is also an emblem for a nationalist political party which I do not like. It is not good to have taken one of the most popular saint woman of France to make of it the symbol of a political parti, because now she is no more an herold of all. Joan of Arc played a role during the hundred year war during the 14th/15th centuries. It was a war between France and England. I apologize to remember at this war to my english friends of the daily photo blogs, because it was a war between England and France, but it is now a long time ago and over. But I am not of these long past times.

We have two photo blogs of Sydney. The first one is a City Photo Blog. Its name is "Through rose-coloured lenses" and it is ruled by "misbehaving chicken".
