The book provides a broad cultural scene as well as moral and ethical dimensions of the Christian perception of work and wealth from the beginning of the European Reformation to the American Enlightenment. The concept of work and wealth is identified through, and measured by the Protestant, and specifically the Puritan work ethic. Contemporary consciousness is here reconstructed through e.g. letters, diaries, journals, poems, prayers, alongside normative writings, which document the attitudes to work and wealth acquisition.

Keywords: reformation, Ppuritanism, enlightenment, Christian thought, Europe, America, work ethic, wealth acquisition.
