a.k.a. Sir Thomas More

Author Code: ETMX

Born: Feb. 7, 1477 - London, England

Died: Jul. 6, 1535 - London, England

Educated at St. Anthony's School on Threadneedle Street in London and Canterbury Hall, Oxford, More became a brilliant barrister. He was elected to Parliament in 1504. He published his classic, Utopia, in 1516. He became privy councilor in the court of Henry VIII in 1518 and eventually succeeded Wolsey as lord chancellor in 1529. He resigned in 1532 and retired. More refused to accept Anne Boleyn after Henry's divorce of Catherine of Aragon and also refused to take any oath that would place Henry at the head of the Church of England in deference to the pope. He was tried and imprisoned in 1534 for high treason and subsequently beheaded in 1535. More's other works include Life of John Picus, Earl of Mirandula (1510), History of Richard II (1543 posthumously), Supplycacyon of Soulys (1529), An Apologye of Syr Thomas More (1533) and numerous Latin works.
