man_for_all_seasons1Ever wondered about the lawyer and saint  for whom the St. John’s Unviersity Church was named?   On Monday,  The Law, Liberty, and Moral Responsibility Film Series features “A Man for All Seasons.”  It is the movie adaptation of Robert Bolt’s play chronicling St. Thomas More’s personal and political struggles with the Court of Henry VIII, during what would be the beginning of the formation of the “Church of England”. Discussions on the themes of this movie, “moral integrity…[and] the relation between law and morality; the connection between natural law and Divine law; and political idealism versus political realism.” will be moderated by Philosophy Professor Douglas B. Rasmussen

The film series is co-sponsored by the Honors Program and the University Libraries and is open to all St. John’s Community members.  The film starts at 7:00 in the Honors Commons, at the back of the Academic Commons.
