Copy of Martin Luther's Ninety-Five Theses Sent to Sir Thomas More by Erasmus

Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus sends a copy of Martin Luther's Ninety-Five Theses to Sir Thomas More, Lord Chancellor of England during King Henry VIII's schism with Rome.

It won't convert More to Protestantism, though — Thomas More will become a Catholic martyr for refusing to accept King Henry VIII as head of the Church of England.
