More was a rationalist theologian.[1] He attempted to use the details of 17th-century mechanical philosophy—as developed by René Descartes—to establish the existence of immaterial substance.[2] He was a prolific writer of verse and prose. The Divine Dialogues (1688), a treatise which condenses his general view of philosophy and religion. Like many others he began as a poet and ended as a prose writer. This work was a folio of all of his works, translated into Latin at the urging of a friend as it was believed this would help his works be remembered as classics.[3]
