In Pursuit of the Almighty's Dollar: A History of Money and American Protestantism

NOTES

PROLOGUE

1 Edwards's salary, as reported by Patricia J. Tracy in Jonathan Edwards, Pastor: Religion and Society in Eighteenth-Century Northampton (New York: Hill and Wang, 1980), 156, is adjusted for differences in colonial pounds sterling, dollars, and price inflation as described in appendix B. Edwards's salary is also adjusted for standard of living differences by a factor of three, a conservative estimate. Clearly, although the colonial clergy, including Edwards, sometimes found it hard to collect their salaries in a timely fashion, the relative values of their incomes have never been equaled in subsequent history.

2 Quoted in “The Puritan Minister,” Atlantic Monthly 12, no. 71 (September 1863): 272.

3 Early Virginia Religious Petitions, a collaborative project of the Library of Congress and the Library of Virginia, (April 14, 2006): “November 7, 1785, Pittsylvania, Against assessment bill”; “November 7, 1785, Pittsylvania, In favor of assessment bill.”
