When I schedule an item in org agenda, I get the calendar prompt with a mini-calendar of three month blocks. The first column is set to 'sunday'.

I would like to set the first column to 'monday' as the first day of the week, with saturday and sunday on the far right.

Does anyone know which variable governs this behavior?

That would be calendar-week-start-day

This should do the trick of setting it to monday:

(setq calendar-week-start-day 1)
