Dark Age Interest Rates

(5th through 11th Centuries)

Background

Influences on Dark Age Thinking

“He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.”

“19 Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of anything that is lent upon usury. 20 Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that the Lord thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it.”
