Hawkes' brilliant anatomy of early modern usury illuminates a keyword of the period. Revealing usury's connections to magic and witchcraft, sodomy, idolatry, unnatural birth, epicurean self-indulgence, consumer desire, and the death of hospitality, Hawkes argues that early modern people saw usury as unambiguously evil.

As odd as it sounds to a contemporary ear, examples of morally stigmatized occupations once included actor (because they feign authenticity and express and arouse problematic thoughts and feelings; Kohansky, 1984), retailer (because they were thought to be unscrupulous; Welch, 2005), and moneylender (because they charge interest on loans; Hawkes, 2010).
