- Max Weber for example placed the institution of religion at the center of his social
analyses. Weber was particularly concerned with how changes in the institution of
religion of religion influenced changes in other social institutions, especially the
economy.
-The selection excerpted here is from Weber argues that the early protestant
worldviews of Calvinism and Puritanism were the primary factors in influencing the
development of a capitalist economic system. Without the Protestant Reformation and
a change in societal values toward rationality, capitalism would not have evolved as
we know it today.
-Even the organization of unfree labour reached a considerable degree of rationality
only on plantations and to a very limited extent in the Ergasteria of antiquity.
-The modern rational organization of the capitalistic enterprise would not have been
possible without two other important factor in its development: the separation of
business from the household, which completely dominates modern economic life, and
closely connected with it, rational bookkeeping.
-Occidental rationalism
-The influence of certain religious ideas on the development of an economic spirit, or
the ethos of an economic system.

economy, this passage by Russell Shorto investigates this relationship.
- In the US, a growing number of evangelical and fundamentalist Christians are

lays his hands on customers and colleagues, bows his head and prays. Lord I pray
you will bring Matt and Leanie the best buyer for their house so that they have
money.
-The bank opened first as a Christian financial institution, with a bible buried in the
foundation and the words In God We trust engraved in the cornerstone. Women
