Still image from The Protestant Revolution: No Rest For The Wicked

In the 21st-century landscape of shopping malls and skyscrapers, capitalism appears irreligious-but beneath its secular veneer lie theological principles born in the 1500s. Examines the rise of the Protestant work ethic and the religious foundations of Western industry. Reveals a Protestant consciousness at the heart of social activism, with an opposition to extreme capitalism. Focuses on Britain's Nonconformist movement, John Winthrop's colonial ventures, the Puritan basis of Benjamin Franklin's ideals, and divisions that arose within Protestantism over slavery and the excesses of factory labor, beginning with John Calvin and his sanctification of material success. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) expanded description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
