To say, as these authors say, that modern Catholicism is but the reverse of the shield of which Protestantism is the obverse, is going too far; but it is true insofar as it points to the undoubted historical fact that the power for good of Catholicism as a social and civilizing force was seriously weakened by the Reformation. 45 The point we have been seeking to make in the last few pages is that the Reformation was such a deep-seated and far-reaching movement that it would be impossible to confine a study of its consequences to the time of the actual reformers; but that the latter must be held responsible for all the necessary consequences of their action in attacking Catholic unity, whether such consequences were, in fact, foreseen or not; and that they must be likewise held responsible for the reactions caused by their religious teaching in other spheres of life, even though we have no evidence that they ever contemplated such consequences.

The power of the medieval Church to regulate economic life by moral axioms rested not alone on any mere accidental circumstance of this kind, but on the much surer and deeper foundation that it was in a position to enforce its regulations by direct sanctions.
