ST.THOMAS MORE, "The King's Good Servant, But God's First."

Sir Thomas More was an English lawyer, Social philosopher, author, statesman and noted Renaissance humanist. He was an important councillor to Henry VIII and Lord Chancellor from October 1529 to 16 May 1532. Thomas More resigned in 1532, at the height of his career and reputation, when Henry ignored church teaching and declared his marriage to Catherine of Aragon annulled so he could marry Anne Boleyn.
