Episode 055: Tudor Times on Thomas More
One of the pivotal personalities in the 16th century, in many ways, despite his fame, Thomas More continues to be an enigma to us, 500 years later. For some, he is a Saint, who fought to keep the church unified. For others, he is remembered for burning Protestants. He's also a leading philosophical light in humanist history. Tudor Times chose him as their September, 2016, Person of the Month, and in this interview with Melita Thomas, editor and co-founder, we are able to get a lot of unbiased information about More.
