Why did the Pilgrims leave Europe

The Pilgrims (or Separatists) left Europe because they believed that the reforms of the Anglican church had not gone far enough. In order to be rightful interpreters of the Bible independent of an inherited social and cultural order, the Pilgrims knew they had to leave England and separate themselves from the Anglican church. They first moved to Holland.

After 12 years of a hard life in Holland, the Pilgrims decided to move again. They hoped to find a "better and easier place of living", to propagate and advance the gospel of the kingdom of Christ in remote parts of the world, and to be left alone to live in their own pure and righteous way. They also knew that Holland's truce with Catholic Spain was near its end and the Pilgrims would have been wiped out if Spain took control of Holland.
