About Thomas More
Thomas More was an English lawyer, social philosopher, author, and statesman. He was known for being a humanist in the Renaissance era.
Thomas More's most famous work is titled Utopia. It is an imaginative work of a fictional idealistic island nation, whose political system follows More's ideal way of living.
More was a major figure in opposition to western Europe's Protestant Reformation, which ultimately led to his death. At the time, Henry VII decided to separate from the Catholic Church. After refusing to recognize Henry as the Supreme Head of the Church of England, More was beheaded for treason.
