Journal Errol backfiring's Journal: Romanic vs Germanic property and religion

While I am searching for types of properrty and its history, I have found a few references that the transition from catholic to protestant religion has also brought a change from germanic property ("clan" property, property that means responsibility) to romanic property ("if I own it I can do with it what I want, even if it hurts others").

the problem is that I cannot see any sense in it. Why would protestants see property different from catholics? If anyone out there is reading this and can give some insight, please post a comment.
