Page "learned" Paragraph 985
from Brown Corpus
We find it in that `` common way of life pleasing to Christ and still in use among the truest societies of Christians '', that is, the better monasteries which made it easier to convert the Utopians to Christianity.
We find it in the later Stoic conception of man's natural condition which included the community of all possessions.
This conception was taken up by the early Church Fathers and by canon lawyers and theologians in the Middle Ages ; ;
and More was far too well read not to have come across it in one or several of the forms thus given it.
