  • Abstract: Readers of the transcripts of Joan's Rouen heresy trial have traditionally concentrated on their content rather than form and on Joan's answers rather than on the questions that provoked her answers. The interplay between the clerics' questions about Joan's "voices from God" and Joan's answers leads one to conclude that the "truth" about these voices is not so much represented as it is produced in the course of the trial.
