This chapter examines the altruistic behavior of Catholic rescuers of Jews in Nazi Europe. It compares the Catholic rescuers with their Protestant counterparts and the results reveal that Catholics are generally more marked by a sharing predisposition and that they scored significantly higher on the sharing factor and its associated measures. It suggests that Catholics owe their sharing dispositions to their religion and their tight collective culture. This chapter also explains that Catholics are united by their religious identification, their sense of patriotism, and their reliance on their religious and national institutions to reach their goals.
