Overview

Sir Thomas More (February 7, 1478 – July 6, 1535), also known by Catholics as Saint Thomas More, was an English lawyer, social philosopher, author, statesman and noted Renaissance humanist. He was an important councillor to Henry VIII of England and for three years toward the end of his life he was Lord Chancellor. He is recognised as a saint within the Catholic Church and is commemorated by the Church of England as a 'Reformation martyr'.
