The following discussion of his encounters in the Old World probes the deep sources of an uneasy, even strained relationship between the mandates of commerce and the prescriptions of godliness in puritan America. 14 CHAPTER ONE KEAYNE, THE MERCHANT TAYLORS' COMPANY, AND CIVIC HUMANISM A survey of Keayne’s life on both sides of the Atlantic sets the context for probing his early career in England. He was born in 1595 in Windsor, Berkshire County, England, the son of the butcher John Keayne. We know little of his early life.
Whereas merchant-minded humanists drew on Stoic moralists, Roman historians, and contemporary iterations of civic virtue, preachers propounded a scriptural discourse peculiar to the saints. They instructed the laity to read the Bible daily; it would be difﬁcult to identify a more “popular” form of literature in this sense. East Anglian puritans favored the Geneva Bible, a translation with copious marginal notes made by dissenters under Calvin’s sway. The Geneva Bible provided a running commentary on social issues.
Civic-humanist merchants grounded their claims on a pragmatic, ﬂexible approach to contemporary problems. From the 1580s through the 1620s, commentators noted momentous developments in the kingdom’s economy: a growing population, a turn to the production of market goods such as wool and iron, an increase in the distance between sites of production and exchange, an intensiﬁed reliance on bonds, bills, and other forms of paper credit, and a sharp rise in commercial litigation.
