Summary/Abstract: The French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars have intiated radical changes in the European development. The essence of the complex transformation underlying the modern historical period was determined by the transition from feudalisme to capitalism, the unfolding social-political and economical double revolution, the accomplishment of the conception of "nation" and the conflicts of the forming nation states. The Congress of Vienna, by putting an end to the transition and forming a firm basis for modern Europe, guaranteed such an operable sytem in terms of crisis management that was not to be destroyed by the subsequent revolutions and local wars. This system created favourable conditions for the civilian transformation, tha capitalist development, and the flourish of the culture, the disciplines and the education.
