A Man For All Seasons

Thomas More
If you know the anything about the Tudors, you will know of Sir Thomas More.

(from HBO's "The Tudors," Jeremy Northam as More)

Or maybe you know him from Utopia, a book he wrote.

The play "A Man For All Seasons" was based on his story.

Sir Thomas More stood up to a King, and not just any king, but King Henry the Eighth. Stood up for what he believed in,...and died for it.

To read about him:


Sir Thomas More Website

I recommend this book by Peter Ackroyd called, "The Life of Thomas More."
