Abstract

The concept of religious capital is emerging as a vehicle for examining the relationship between religion and economic development. Religious capital is a relatively new concept that has mostly been used to explain religious commitment and organisational change at the individual and household levels; however, that it is useful in wider spheres is now emerging. A theoretical framework that may be useful for a more detailed understanding of how religious capital interacts with economic development is suggested based on Smart's seven dimensions of the research experience.
