It was in 1528, that Sir Thomas More, being already regarded as the most accomplished scholar in England, and having before his eyes a near prospect of being invited to fill the chief place in his sovereign’s council, was induced to accept bishop Tonstal’s permission to read the works of the reformers, that he might be qualified to refute them; nor did he suffer the year to elapse before he had composed, as the first fruits of his consequent researches and zeal, an imaginary dialogue between himself and the confidential messenger of a friend desirous to know his opinions respecting the religious questions which were then forcing themselves into general notice. In the edition of Sir Thomas More’s works, printed at London in 1557, and then dedicated to queen Mary, as “To that person to whom specially of all worldly creatures the editor [William Rastell, serjeant at law] trusted the book should be most acceptable,” the title of this effort to write down Tyndale and his labours is as follows: “A dialogue of Sir Thomas More, knt. one of the council of our sovereign lord the king, and chancellor of his duchy of Lancaster. Wherein he treated divers matters, as of the veneration and worship of images and reliques, praying to saints, and going on pilgrimages, with many other things touching the pestilent sect of Luther and Tyndale, by the one begun in Saxony, and by the other labored to be brought into England. Made in the year of our Lord, 1528.” The dialogue was divided by its author into four books; and occupies in that quarto edition a hundred and eighty-four closely printed pages.

    (1494 ca - Vilvoorde, Bruxelles, 1536) riformatore inglese. Maestro nella facoltà delle arti di Oxford e Cambridge, nel 1521 divenne precettore di sir J. Walsh. Avendo progettato una traduzione inglese del Nuovo Testamento, si imbatté in serie opposizioni, che lo convinsero a riparare in Germania, dove fece stampare la propria versione (Colonia-Worms, 1525). A Marburgo, presso Filippo d’Assia, pubblicò la sua opera originale, L’ubbidienza di un cristiano (1528). Ricercato da Enrico VIII, venne scoperto ad Anversa, dove nel 1534 aveva stampato un’edizione riveduta del Nuovo Testamento, di chiara impronta luterana. Imprigionato a Vilvoorde, presso Bruxelles, venne condannato a morte e arso. A T. è riconosciuto il merito di avere contribuito alla formazione del vocabolario religioso inglese:... Approfondisci
