    Pour l'Amour du Ciel - Moreana Eds., 2012
      La mort, le péché et l'Au-delà dans les écrits de Thomas More
    Author : Marie-Claire PHELIPPEAU
    Preface by Germain Marc'hadour – Moreana Editions, 426 p.

    Why did Thomas More repeatedly refuse to sign Henry VIII's oath, until he had no choice but suffer a traitor's death? For heaven's sake!
    Marie-Claire Phélippeau does not research the political motivations that justified More's opposition to his sovereign but the spiritual reasons that led him to prefer martyrdom.
    The analysis draws on the history of ideas and mentalities taking into account the evolution of the conception of death and sin in Western thought.
    The polemics due to the advance of the Reformers' ideas led More to affirm his demanding conception of salvation, defending against Luther the notion of personal merit.
    Pour l'Amour du Ciel draws on the whole of Thomas More's life and writings, to follow and explain his unique albeit diverse desire of heaven.

      Author:  Catherine Bertrand-Garnerie - for youth from 11

         - I shall tolerate no opposition in this affair! Roars out the king whose face twists into one threatening grimace.

         As the Chancellor of England, does Thomas More have to obey the king, at the risk of losing himself? Or resist, at the risk of losing everything?

    Medieval Heroes for Modern Times - Moreana Eds, 2011
      Gonzalo Fernandez de Cordoba, Christopher Colombus

    Author : Anonymous. Italian-English bilingual edition of an unpublished Italian 16th century poem.  Introduction, notes and translation into English by Stelio Cro – Moreana Editions, 87 p.

    This poem of 712 lines is an anonymous work, probably written in 1550, which relates the “parallel lives” of two heroes linked to the Discovery of the New World, Gonzalo de Córdoba, known as El Gran Capitán, who had earlier on fought for the Reconquista, and Christopher Columbus. “The two characters represent the two faces of the coin. The Great Captain is the foreign heir of the Cid, fighting and conquering Italy for his Kings; Columbus is the new man, a magnificent representative of the Renaissance and of Christian Humanism”. The poem praises the heroes who made Spain a great kingdom and changed the face of the world.

         « Brillant lettré de Cambridge et Oxford, Membre du Parlement,
    Richard Mulcaster accepta la tâche ingrate de maître d’école à Londres au service des marchands-tailleurs et marchands de soie. Tenu d’enseigner strictement les lettres classiques à leurs fils, il chercha dans sa longue pratique de directeur de « grammar-schools » à éduquer à la fois le corps et l’esprit par la valorisation de l’exercice et des sports, dont le tennis et le football…
         Disciple de Juan Luis Vives, il prôna l’usage de la langue vernaculaire
    selon des règles strictes tout en rêvant d’une formation efficace de maîtres convaincus de leur mission et d’une politique de sélection de futures élites capables d’œuvrer au bien commun au lieu d’encombrer la société de leur oisiveté et il suggéra d’admettre les filles sur les bancs de l’école… »

    Elizabeth Longford : Great men's women often get a bad press, whether deserved or not. More's Dame Alice hitherto bad press has been undeserved, as this absorbing book convincingly shows.
