|Event Details:||Shakespeare's Henry V depicts the Battle of Agincourt (1415) during the Hundred Years War (1337-1453) as a heroic English victory against improbable odds. The battle, however, made little difference and the war should actually be read as the story of Joan of Arc's resistance, a settled civil war, and how the French state emerged from the challenge of foreign invasion stronger and more unified
than ever before. Presented by special guest Lecturer Jennifer Paxton, PhD, Professor, Catholic University. A wine and dessert reception to follow.
