There is a point before before she was burned where a french solider is setting up the cross. In a gesture, and to make her point, Joan throws her arms wide in the 'despair of all humanity'. This is the point of the epilogue...Joan and her unflinching boldness and frankness would be no more welcome in the modern world than she was in the medieval one.
