Full Product Description

Discover the life of the mind behind Utopia, one of the most revolutionary speculative works of all time, in this brief history on Thomas More. This insightful and concise read shows Thomas More in relation to his own time, as his examines religion and society, and how his ideas were received.

This brief historical introduction to Thomas More explores the social, political and religious factors that formed the original context of his life and writings, and considers how those factors affected the way he was initially received. What was his impact on the world at the time and what were the key ideas and values connected with him?
