An answere vnto Sir Thomas Mores Dialoge was printed by Catholic University Press in 2000 and is the first volume in the Independent Works of William Tyndale to reach completion. Sir Thomas More, Lord Chancellor to King Henry VIII, received permission to read books by early Protestant reformers in order to refute them. First published in 1529, More's Dialogue concerning Heresies responds substantially to Tyndale's work. In his rejoinder to More, An answere vnto Sir Thomas Mores Dialoge (1531), Tyndale defends his own theology as well as the controversial language of some of his translations. A further reply from More, The confutation of Tyndale's answer (1532-33), reaffirms More's positions.
