Part One: The History (What do we know?) This brief historical
introduction to Thomas More explores the social, political and
religious factors that formed the original context of his life and
writings, and considers how those factors affected the way he was
initially received. What was his impact on the world at the time
and what were the key ideas and values connected with him? Part
Two: The Legacy (Why does it matter?) This second part explores the
intellectual and cultural `afterlife' of Thomas More, and considers
the ways in which his impact has lasted and been developed in
different contexts by later generations. Why is he still considered
important today? In what ways is his legacy contested or resisted?
And what aspects of his legacy are likely to continue to influence
the world in the future?
