"Haupt serves his reader with references, cross-references, and illuminating explanations where the text calls for them. His familiarity with foreign languages, medieval and Tudor spirituality, and the theology relevant to it comes across here in the introduction as a generously humane erudition put to the service of an author with a many-sided genius. Years of work are reflected in the careful scholarship of this volume."?Walter M. Gordon, Moreana

"Well edited."?Nicolas Barker, Times Literary Supplement

"This volume in the Yale Edition of the Complete Works of St. Thomas More is a worthy member of an excellent series. The commentary is admirable; it is full, detailed, and genuinely illuminating. Quotations in More's text and sources of his biblical exegesis are meticulously traced; significant parallels to More's other works are pointed out, and profound critical acumen is shown in the comments on themes and style. The glossary, which is necessary to a proper understanding of More's English, is copious and extremely helpful. The bibliography and the index are exemplary. all in all this is a book not only for the scholar but for every discerning reader who is fascinated by the life works and times of St. Thomas More, incomparable the greatest Englishman of his age."?J.W. Blench, Renaissance Quarterly
