Description

Sir Thomas More was an English lawyer, philosopher, statesman and noted Renaissance humanist. He famously served as the Chancellor of England, being sentenced and beheaded for refusing to accept King Henry VIII as head of the Church of England. Today More is recognised as a saint by the Roman Catholic Church and he is remembered widely as the author of the influential book 'Utopia'. The ancestor of the utopian romance genre, it concerns a political system of an imaginary and ideal island nation. Entirely governed by reason, the order and dignity of More's Utopia provides a notable contrast with the unreasonable polity of Christian Europe at the time. This comprehensive eBook presents More's collected works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts appearing in digital print for the first time, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
