Thomas More (1478–1535) was an English lawyer, social philosopher, author, statesman, and noted Renaissance humanist. He was an important councilor to Henry VIII of England and, for three years toward the end of his life, lord chancellor. More opposed King Henry VIII’s separation from the Catholic Church, and was martyred on Tower Hill in 1535. He is recognized as a saint within the Catholic Church and is commemorated by the Church of England as a Reformation martyr.
