3 thoughts on “Feast of St. Thomas More”

  1. I have no use for him. he executed many when he had the power to do so. He courted martyrdom; he and his family could have fled to France as many others did. He wore a hair shirt, for God’s sake.

  2. “A Man for all Seasons” remains one of my favourite films, and the Ackroyd biography is good (as are most of his books). But “Wolf Hall” by Hilary Mantell rounds the picture of More and Cromwell perfectly. A brilliant book I can’t recommend enough. Mantell brings this most interesting bit of English history to life.
