As he sees it, the most momentous impact of Protestantism has to do with fundamental premises of modernity (especially in regard to changes in the relationship between religion and politics), rather than with any particular eﬀects on capitalist development, and the modernizing potential of the Reformation could only be realized in conjunction with other factors which aﬀected the overall direction of change. As for the more speciﬁc aspects of modernization, with particular reference to its pioneering European version, Eisenstadt’s approach leads to some signiﬁcant shifts of emphasis.
Eisenstadt’s account of European antecedents to the original modernizing process goes beyond earlier views in its sustained emphasis on internal pluralism; this focus allows a more adequate grasp of the medieval world and its legacy; in contrast to Parsons, there is no suggestion that the complex interplay of speciﬁc transformative factors can be reduced to an acceleration of general trends. In brief, the historical trajectory of the premodern West appears as an innovative pattern in its own right, and the rediscovery of its civilizational dimensions calls for a reappraisal of its modernizing sequel.
E. the rediscoveries of classical traditions by the rising West, have no parallel in the two other civilizational complexes, but they drew—in decisive yet diﬀerent ways—on both Byzantine and Islamic links to antiquity. Finally, the early dynamic of Western expansion and the subsequent transition to a later phase were closely linked to confrontation with the two neighbouring civilizations. On the one hand, the ﬁrst sustained push beyond cultural boundaries—the crusades—was in the ﬁrst instance directed against a resurgent Islam, but its main eﬀect was to damage the Byzantine realm beyond repair and thus to pave the way for a new and unprecedented challenge from the Islamic side; on the other hand, a more successful local counter-oﬀensive against Islamic expansion—on the Iberian peninsula—helped to consolidate the states which then took the lead in the ﬁrst wave of early modern overseas expansion.
