One of the most scholarly and comprehensive treatments of the antagonism between Catholic doctrine and the capitalist spirit. The author was the Chair of Economic History at the University of the Sacred Heart, Milan, Italy, and was the heir to a long and unmatched tradition of Italian Social Catholicism, a tradition effectively sanctioned and promoted by Popes Leo XIII and Saint Pius X.
Catholicism, Protestantism, and Capitalism will be of particular interest to those seeking to better understand both the preconceptions and mentalities that the pioneers of the capitalist system possessed, and the Catholic reaction to that system.
The book demonstrates conclusively, that there is a scholarly, intelligent, and convincing answer to the propaganda that the world is irreparably divided into two camps, the capitalist and socialist. We do not need to choose the lesser of these two evils, but rather we ought to steer a Catholic course between these twin pillars of shipwreck (cf. Quadragesimo Anno).
Easy to read and yet scholarly, accessible and yet referencing literally hundreds of primary sources, this book will change the way Catholics think about economic life.
