QU POLIS: Sir Thomas More

October 25, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Sir Thomas More was executed on July 5, 1535, at the Tower of London. More was beheaded for refusing to submit to King Henry VIII’s authority. More was eventually canonized as a saint in the Catholic Church and a play and movie, A Man for All Seasons, celebrated him as a man of virtue who stood up to the tyranny of a king. However, some recent authors have questioned Thomas More’s life and legacy. This talk will examine the debate over whether Thomas More was a saint or a sinner.
