As well as the prayers, the book contains a treatise called “To Receive the Blessed Body of Our Lord Sacramentally and Virtually Both.”

“An intimate friend of Erasmus and Holbein, More was known throughout the Renaissance world as a man of noble character and deep religious conviction, with great personal charm, unfailing good humour, piercing wit and such courage and faith that he was able to jest on the scaffold. With the exception of the translation from the Latin of the prayer of Picus Mirandula, all the pieces in this book were written during More’s imprisonment in the Tower of London from April 1534 until his death.” (From the front inside fold of the dust jacket)
