Emden and the Dutch Revolt

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the impact of the Dutch Reformation on the exile movement among Protestants in Germany. Most of the Dutch Protestants who left the Netherlands to escape persecution found refuge in Emden. Germany offered a friendlier environment for the Protestants because Charles V was constantly inhibited by his need to keep the cooperation of the German princes, while in the Netherlands he faced no restraint.
