" Thus, the main difference was a metaphysical difference with moral ramifications, and other differences were mirrored in this central difference identity and otherness were essentially measured in relation to God and the Devil. Gradually the emergence of burghers, merchants, and towns with rights began to undermine the feudal hierarchy and so did the development of monarchy and absolutist states.
