As part of our St. Thomas More weekend (ok, we missed the feast day itself but we know Thomas is the reason for the season!)take a look at this:
It is a very cool multi-media exploration of the beautiful 1593 painting (based upon Hans Holbein's 1520's sketch) of St. Thomas More and his extended family.
You can zoom in to see every detail, read bios of each family member and learn about the clothing, architecture, furniture, garden, and books that are portrayed in the painting. Thomas More fans like myself and history buffs in general will love it.
