Over the course often years, they analyzed some 15,000 items of American political commentary published between 1760 and 1805, the Founding Era. This research paper, "The Relative Influence of European Writers on Late Eighteenth-Century American Political Thought," was published in The Amer- ican Political Science Review, 78 (1984). The researchers isolated 3,154 direct quotes made by the Founders over this period of time and identified the source of those quotes. The researchers discovered that 34 percent of the Founders' quotes came directly out of the Bible. Baron Charles de Montesquieu, a French legal philosopher, was quoted 8.3 percent of the time. Sir William Blackstone, a renowned English jurist whose Commentaries on the Laws of England were highly accepted in America, was next at 7.9 percent of the Founders' quotes, and John Locke, an English philosopher, was fourth with 2.9 percent. While it is true that three-fourths of the biblical citations in the 1760 to 1805 sample came from reprinted sermons (one of the most popular types of political writing during these years), and only 9 percent of all citations came from secular literature, it is a re- flection of the powerful role of the Bible upon the thinking of the Founding Fathers.
