In his recent book John Fisher and Thomas More: Keeping Their Souls While Losing Their Heads, Robert Conrad, who serves as a federal district court judge in the Western District of North Carolina, details the lives, trials, and executions of two Catholic saints who opposed King Henry’s bid for ecclesiastical approval of his divorce. Thomas More, an attorney and close advisor to the king, underwent a trial filled with grievous errors, the deprivation of due process, and more.

Judge Conrad will join us to discuss his book, these two men, and the enduring relevance of their stories.
