Law, Legislation, and Lending: An Examination of the Influence of the Crusades on the Usury Prohibition

Ryan, Matthew James

MA Thesis, University of North Carolina (2008)

Abstract

The focus of this work is an exploration of the potential impact of the economic necessities of crusading on the usury prohibition of the Latin Church. Throughout the twelfth-century, one sees an amplified rhetoric and an increasing intolerance of lending at interest. The question remains as to why, especially in a period of corresponding commercial growth. The protection of combatants became an area of critical importance, as highlighted by the canonical legislation of the period. Property protection, the continuance of fair market practices, and the extended policy of limiting trade with the Saracens each played a crucial role in the enforcement of usury statues. It also inspired a sense of “Christian Universalism” that was significant to the crusading movement.

    Good day, dear colleagues and friends. I spent a lot of time looking for a good blog on similar topics, but many of them did not suit me with the lack or lack of information, stupid interfaces, and so on. Now I found what I wanted and decided to add my own comment. I would like, dear sirs administrators, that your blog continues to develop at such a pace, the number of people grows steadily, and the pages become more and more. I remembered the address of your blog for a long time and I hope to enter the ranks of the most active users. Many thanks to everyone who listened to me and took a minute of free time to read this commentary. Thanks again. Vitaly.
