 Reformation Churches and a Modern Protestant Moral Order

Show Summary Details


Addresses the major issue laid bare by the new Protestant religious statistics: whether historic Reformation churches, even the widespread lay revivals, had any place at all, even a moral role, in a new market economy and urban and industrial culture. Marxist Social Democratic programmes, which proclaimed religion to be a private matter, provided a fundamental challenge to Reform.

Keywords: market economy; Marxism; moral order; reformation churches; Social Democracy; urban and industrial culture
