John Scarisbrick pursued a distinguished academic career and was appointed Professor of History at the University of Warwick. He participated as a Catholic delegate on the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission, which produced its Final Report in 1982. His major work of study is Henry VIII. He is now in retirement and living in Leamington Spa.
Drawing from the details contained in paintings and accounts, the author draws our attention to the considerable knowledge about Thomas More that is available. He then goes on to question why More entered politics and developed his public career? By placing More's writings firmly in their context, the consistency of More's political and religious presence is argued. An appeal for scholars to try to comprehend More's perception of his time leads the writer to define the motive for More's death as being the unity of the Christian Church.
