Example text

For irrigated agriculture, a water rate was an even more important source of state revenue than the land tax. This was payable whenever water from irrigation works was used by the farmer, even if the works belong to the farmer himself. There was a graduated schedule of the rate to be charged, depending on the nature of the irrigation works used. If the works were such that the water was set in motion by hand, the rate payable was one-fifth of the produce; if set in motion by shoulders, the rate rose to one-fourth; the latter rate also applied to lift-irrigation, water being lifted from tanks, wells, rivers and lakes, while the rate increased to one-third when water was set flowing in channels by a mechanical device.

There were also artisans working independently with their own capital and in their own workshops.

Viner (1978) has shown that contempt for worldly goods was a ‘fundamental and dominant’ element in the teachings of the Christian Fathers.
