French ecclesiastical leaders allied with the English begin a judicial inquiry into whether or not Joan of Arc is a heretic.

The actual trial of Joan of Arc will not begin until late February, but the legal inquiry into Joan of Arc begins on this date and the trial records start with:

"Here begin the proceedings in matter of faith against a dead woman, Jeanne, commonly known as the Maid."

Clerical notary Nicolas Bailly is tasked with collecting evidence against Joan of Arc during this inquiry but fails to find anything to support the charges.
