(So, I have to agree or disagree with regards to the statement provided.. please comment on how I can make my answer better)

Confirming Max Weber’s thoughts on the dynamics between religion, economics, and culture--Protestantism and urbanization had a mutual reinforcing relationship during the early modern period.

(Agree) According to Max Weber’s book, capitalism in northern Europe evolved when the Protestant (particularly Calvinist) ethic influenced large numbers of people to engage in work in the secular world, developing their own enterprises and engaging in trade and the accumulation of wealth for investment. In other words, the Protestant work ethic was an important force behind the unplanned and uncoordinated mass action that influenced the development of capitalism. Therefore, Protestantism and urbanization had a mutually reinforcing relationship in the Early Modern Period because through the people’s religion, they became motivated to work, which promoted better work ethics. Through better work ethics, production increases, therefore the economy increases. One of the key factors of urbanization is economic growth, therefore, it can be said that Protestantism had a great impact on northern Europe’s urbanization.
