Why didn’t the English Revolution take place in the 16th century – immediately after the Reformation? Why did this happen in the Netherlands and Germany?
The bourgeois revolution begins when the rapid growth of the capitalist economy meets the barrier of feudal customs and absolutist laws. In England, feudal structures were largely destroyed during the War of the Scarlet and White Rose, so that only absolutist restrictions remained: their capitalism outgrew much later. On the contrary, in Germany and the Netherlands, feudal vestiges were preserved in full by the beginning of the 16th century.
