A work composed by St. Thomas More during his imprisonment in the Tower of London, where he spent a year and a half until his martyrdom. This is perhaps his most personal and philosophical book, as well as the most extense, and it is part of the literature of consolation.

With great sensitivity, it shows fictitious characters. It is a dialogue between two figures -Antonio and Vicente, who represent weight and lightness, wisdom and curiosity- in which the different temptations and the way to overcome them appear. The plot is set in Hungary. Faith, Hope and Charity are of great importance, and much use is made of the Holy Scriptures. Saint Thomas More shows an enormous love for life and the strength of the believer in the face of death.
