Description
First published in 1516, Thomas More's Utopia is one of the most important works of European humanism. Through the voice of the mysterious traveler Raphael Hythloday, More describes a pagan, communist city-state governed by reason. Addressing such issues as religious pluralism, women's rights, state-sponsored education, colonialism, and justified warfare, Utopia seems remarkably contemporary nearly five centuries after it was written, and it remains a foundational text in philosophy and political theory.



About the Author
Thomas More (1478-1535) was an English philosopher, lawyer and political figure. He served as Henry VIII's chancellor and was put to death over the split between the Roman and the English church. Erasmus said, "[More's] soul was more pure than any snow."

Turner is a priest of the diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, in Missouri, and pastor of St. John Francis Regis Parish in Kansas City. He holds a doctorate in sacred theology from Sant' Anselmo in Rome. A frequent wirter and speaker on issues of Christian initiation, he is also a team member for The North American Forum on the Catechumenate.
