Primary Sources

More's execution discouraged publication of his work; but in the Catholic interim under Mary I his nephew William Rastell edited the vernacular writings, The Works of Sir Thomas More in the Englysh tonge, London, 1557; reprinted with an introduction by K. J. Wilson, Menston: Scolar Press, 1978. His complete Latin works, Opera omnia, were printed at Louvain in 1565 and 1566, and at Frankfurt in 1689. All his extant works are now available in the Yale edition, which provides authoritative texts with comprehensive introductory material and annotation. More's letters have been edited by Elizabeth F. Rogers; but she does not include his exchanges with Erasmus, and for these the reader must consult P.S. Allen's Erasmi epistolae, or the correspondence volumes (vols 1–21, 15 so far published) in the Toronto Collected Works of Erasmus. Abbreviated citations used in the entry are given below.
