    Religions trigger and worsen wars.

    Wars are  good for industry and R&D, not for trade.

    Most people take it for granted, but the world was once hopelessly 'tribal' and any kind of inter-tribal trade was very dangerous and only conducted along established trade routes which were expensive to use because a standing army was basically necessary to prevent legitimate traders from being robbed and killed before ever getting the chance.

    Christianity, in particular, unleashed the great shared prosperity of the 'modern' world by reaching across tribal boundaries, language boundaries, ethnic boundaries and cultural boundaries with a message of universal forgiveness and brotherhood that led to the formation of the first 'university' system, a shared vision of world peace attainable through economic equality, the grand institutions and social models that have given us the 'modern' world itself and an ongoing sense that humans really can get along despite ethnicity, birth class and gender distinctions as long as they speak the 'language of peace,' ('business'). Everyone else continues to benefit from it and emulate it in their own ways. 

    "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus." (Galatians 3:28).

    Well...think about it.

    No religion, no trade in religious items or religious-related items.

    So: I would expect that it increases trade, probably significantly.
