    Thomas More’s seminal work Utopia was first published five hundred years ago in 1516 in Leuven, Belgium. Utopia depicts a fictional island where all the inhabitants share a common culture and live a simple shared lifestyle. Canon Thomas Finan, St. Patrick’s College, Maynooth donated his collection of books to the library in 2010 which included many books relating to Thomas More. Included in his collection is Thomas More’s Utopia which is held in Special Collections. It was reprinted in 1899 from the 2nd and revised edition of 1556.
