Utopia Religion Quotes

How we cite our quotes: (Book.Page) based on the 1989 Cambridge University Press edition

Quote #10

Their priests are of great holiness and therefore very few. (2.101)

This quick remark sounds obviously different from what we've been hearing about European priests. Is More setting Utopia up to be the opposite of Europe? Whatever Utopia has, Europe doesn't, and vice versa? Or are Europeans supposed to see enough of themselves in the Utopians that they feel Utopia is an attainable goal?
