Overview

Sir Thomas More (7 February 1478 � 6 July 1535), known to Roman Catholics as Saint Thomas More since 1935 was an English lawyer, social philosopher, author, statesman, and noted Renaissance humanist. He was an important councillor to Henry VIII of England and was Lord Chancellor from October 1529 to 16 May 1532. He was canonized by Pope Pius XI in 1935 as one of the early martyrs of the schism that separated the Church of England from Rome in the 16th century. In 2000, Pope John Paul II declared him patron of Catholic statesmen and politicians. More coined the word "utopia" � a name he gave to the ideal and imaginary island nation, the political system of which he described in Utopia, published in 1516, describing a fictional island society in the Atlantic Ocean.
