520    "Late medieval church courts frequently excommunicated 
       debtors at the request of their creditors. Tyler Lange 
       analyzes over 11,000 excommunications between 1380 and 
       1530 in order to explore the forms, rhythms, and cultural 
       significance of the practice. Three case studies 
       demonstrate how excommunication for debt facilitated minor
       transactions in an age of scarce small-denomination 
       coinage and how interest-free loans and sales credits 
       could be viewed as encouraging the relations of charitable
       exchange that were supposed to exist between members of 
       Christ's body. Lange also demonstrates how from 1500 or so
       believers gradually turned away from the practice and 
       towards secular courts, at the same time as they retained 
       the moralized, economically irrational conception of 
       indebtedness we have yet to shake. The demand-driven rise 
       and fall of excommunication for debt reveals how believers
       began to reshape the institutional Church well before 
       Martin Luther posted his theses"--|cProvided by publisher
