e-commerce is a Protestant invention, apparently – Published 30 Aug 2007

“Do you now why e-commerce is so slow to take off in Italy? Partly it’s because we don’t trust the postal service or online payments but it’s also because computer shopping robs us of the tactile pleasures of choosing and purchasing. Physical perceptions are also part of the Catholic liturgy, in which the senses support the spirit. In fact you could say that e-commerce is a Protestant invention – sensible but unsatisfying.”
