- The purpose of the thesis is to elucidate whether the Protestant Reformation, especially its Calvinist branch, have contributed a decisive role for the formation and development of modern capitalism. For more than a century this Question has been the focal point of a scholarly controversy which had its beginning in 1904-5 with the publication by the famous German sociologist, Max Weber, of an article entitled "Die Protestantische Ethik und der Geist des Kapitalimus" (The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism). In his essay Weber proposed the tentative thesis that this crucial element had appeared as a kind of by-poduct of the religious ethics of Calvinism.
