Sample text

38 INTRODUCTION more radical fashion, in the countries newly Protestant, was at the base of the gradual weakening of those social structures which were intended to ensure a common use of new wealth. ” That spirit was the burrowing worm inside medieval economy that brought about the distance between the business and entrepreneurial world and Gospel ethics. In this sense (and in this respect, Fanfani drew somewhat closer to Weber’s interpretation), the decrease in influence exercised by the Church, following the breakup of Christendom incident to the birth of Protestantism, had ultimately accelerated a process which, nevertheless, was not born of the Reformation but had its origins further back in time.

15. 9 Leo XIII, Rerum Novarum, §14. 34 FOREWORD and Teaching of the Church’s Social Doctrine in the Formation of Priests, states that the development of CST is based on a three step process: see, judge, and act: Seeing is perception and study of real problems and their causes, the analysis of which, however, belongs to the human and social sciences. Judging is interpretation of that same reality in the light of the sources of social doctrine which determine the judgment pronounced with regard to social phenomena and their ethical implications.

My purpose here is not so much to introduce Fanfani’s important book, but more so to look at how current economists view the issue, and to look briefly at the current discussion on the relationship between Christianity and capitalism. We will find that what is most missing in the current discussions is exactly what Catholicism, Protestantism and Capitalism has to offer, and if the current scholarship on the relationship between Christianity and capitalism hopes to go beyond the superficial analysis of the similarities and differences between Christianity and economics to a deeper Christian understanding of the economy and economic activity, than they will have to follow Fanfani’s lead in taking capitalism (and Christianity for that matter) seriously.
