More, Sir Thomas

Sir Thomas More (1478-1535), English statesman, lawyer, humanist, saint, poet, and author, was one of the most versatile and talented men of his age. He held important government positions, including serving as lord chancellor. Though he had been a long-time friend of King Henry VIII, he was a staunch Catholic and could not accept the king's demand that all subjects acknowledge the king above the pope, resulting in his execution in 1535. With his writing of Utopia, he takes his place with the most eminent humanists of the Renaissance.
