On this day Sir Thomas More went on trial in England charged with treason 1 Jul 1535

The devil...the prowde spirit..cannot endure to be mocked. Thomas More

The King's good servant, but God's First.- Thomas More's last words on the scaffold where he was about to be executed for refusing to sign the Act of Supremacy: In November 1534 Parliament confirmed that Henry VIII is "Supreme Governorof the Church of England," giving the king the right to reform the church and to judge heresies. So More died a martyr for the papacy.
