According to Wikipedia: "Utopia is a work of fiction and political philosophy by Thomas More published in 1516... The book, written in Latin, is a frame narrative primarily depicting a fictional island society and its religious, social and political customs... Sir Thomas More (February 7, 1478 July 6, 1535), also known as Saint Thomas More, was an English lawyer, scholar, author, and statesman. He is also recognised as a saint within the Catholic Church. During his life he gained a reputation as a leading Renaissance humanist, an opponent of the Protestant Reformation of Martin Luther and wrote long treatises opposing William Tyndale and others who wished to see the Bible translated into the English language. For three years toward the end of his life he was Lord Chancellor."
