Abstract

The essays in this volume examine successful entrepreneurs from different industries and time periods. They show that at least in terms of Schumpeter`s model, entrepreneurship must be regarded as an individual quality, for no specific defining characteristic can be found, including social background, that suggests the existence of a specific ´entrepreneurial` type.

Abstract

The charges brought in an Inquisition case that revealed scandalous conditions in the Roman Catholic cloister of Sant Ambrogio between 1859 and 1862 included pretense of holiness and attempted murder.

Historians, theologians, religious scholars, and a psychiatrist shed a multifaceted light on the case.

Abstract

For a long time, big banks had little interest in having workers or employees as their customers. Only in the aftermath of the German Economic Miracle did Deutsche Bank, Dresdner Bank, and Commerzbank begin wooing the common people and their savings with new financial products. But were the big banks the real driving forces behind this change or were the banks being impelled by the dawn of a new dynamic epoch?

Abstract

There is broad historical awareness for Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation in Germany, Europe, and the ´West` as a whole, but given the persistent myths about the persona and work of this reformer, there is a need for a radical re-historicization of Luther and his reception. This compendium seeks to stimulate such a reevaluation in order to place the 500-year commemoration of the Protestant Reformation on sound historical footing.

Abstract

At the beginning of the 20th century, two revolutionary processes intersected in European industrialized societies. The sciences became a central force for interpreting the world, and the democratization of modern life became a key determinant of the political and cultural order. These processes turned Europe into a laboratory for very different interconnections between scientific self-observation and ideas about polity.
