This is a formatted document for the purpose of easy access, printing and distribution to students for the purpose of analyzing documents in AP World History Courses. If you teach AP World, you are familiar with the use of primary documents for the purpose of document analysis. Many times these documents are in a document source book and have to be copied for distribution to students; or there are electronic versions where students must read the document on-line and submit answers. The service that I have provided for you is to simply format the document with the analysis questions into an easy-to access and printable document that can be readily printed for easy distribution to students. Document analysis questions are also included so that documents can be read and analyzed individually, in a pair-share situation or use in a Group setting.

Sir Thomas More (1478-1535) was an English statesman and philosopher most famed for his execution for refusing to acknowledge the decision of King Henry VIII and the English parliament to act contrary to Papal decisions. More was canonized as a Roman Catholic Saint in 1935. More's Utopia was modeled after Plato's Republic. In this selection More describes the religious practices of the inhabitants of this isolated island.
