Saint Thomas More (7 February 1478 – 6 July 1535)
Thomas More was an English Lawyer and important councillor to Henry VIII.
Despite his role as Lord Chancellor he was tried for high treason after refusing to accept Henry VIII as head of the Church. He was martyred by being beheaded in 1584. He was canonised by Pope Paul VI in 1970 as one of the Forty Martyrs of England and Wales.
