The documents show and describe the Black Death and how it happened in many ways. Europe really didn’t know what to think of all the death that was surrounding them so they tried understanding it the best they could. Some were more rational about it and knew that they should try to avoid the dead and contact with those who may be ill. Others were scared and decided to blame it on those with different beliefs as them. They didn’t want to believe that they had done something wrong for which God would punish them. Europe just didn’t understand what was happening or what to do to make it

I witnessed The Black Death arrival in Europe in October 1347 when trading ships docked at the Sicilian port after a long journey through the Black Sea. The people who went to the docks to greet the ships were met with a terrifying surprise. The sailors aboard the ships were
The black death was one of the most devastating pandemics in European history, resulting in millions of death between the years 1347-51. It had significant impact at the time, sparking widespread fear and leading to the breakdown of social order and family bonds. The black death also arguably led to long-term changes to the structure of European society. It is historically significant not just because of its impact but also because it reveals some dominant ideas and religious beliefs of the time. Arguably it is also significant because it is still relevant today, highlighting how communities react during times of crisis.
Did the Black Death break the Malthusian Deadlock that was hanging over England in the 14th century? Did the people really create a better country after this horrendous plague? These exemplify some of the intriguing questions asked about the Black Death.
In history, a frequent topic of debate is the legacy that the Mongol Empire left behind. It can easily be argued that they were nothing but murderous barbarians, a monotonous war machine. This is proven by the fact that they used biological warfare at the Siege of Caffa in 1346. The Mongols catapulted disease ridden corpses into the city of Caffa to spread the Black Plague into the city.(Wheelis) They also killed millions in the cities and towns that they raided(Rummel). The Mongols were guilty of crimes against humanity as they encouraged the spread of the Black Plague and slaughtered millions of innocent people in their military campaigns.
The Black Plague, a disease many would agree was both one of the most devastating and poignant events to occur in European History. A time of persecution and suffering, many had to endure the effects that the Black Plague brought with it. Amidst the consequences suffered by those carrying the disease, came the ramifications that those who were not directly affected experienced. A few ramifications were self-evident, such as trade, others were concealed within the fear that the population had lost so much already, they could no longer afford to lose anything else, whether that be dignity or pride. The plague caused many to question their religious outlook, the lack of knowledge caused false cures to develop and affected the interactions throughout Europe.
The Black Death was started in 1347 and ended around 1350, but there is some cases that still happen today. The Black Death was started by black rats that had a bacterium Yersinia pestis. The Black Death spreaded from France to the port of Weymouth. But as some researchers said that the Black Death might have not been caused by just rats, it also says that more than one thing could have caused so many people to die. Therefore researchers are still doing research on the Blath Death to this
Before the Black Death, hospitals were just places were the sick were taken to be isolated, so they would not infect others. Hospitals at this time did not do much for a person’s sick body and health because most people at this time believed that someone got sick because they had committed a sin. This was because religion was what people during this time based their lives on (Black Death). During this time hospitals did more for the soul than they did for the body. These hospitals were more like present-day hospices. The people that worked at these hospitals were usually monks or nuns, and they would pray or have mass for the sick and that was it. They did not perform any medical procedures on them (10 Good Things We
The Black Death arrived in Europe on October 1348 when 12 Genoese trading ships arrived at the Sicilian port of Messina after a long journey through the Black Sea. The people who gathered on the docks that was about to greet the ships met with a horrifying surprise: Most of the sailors aboard the ships were dead, and those who were still alive were gravely ill. They were overcome with fever and delirious from pain. Also, they were covered in mysterious black boils that oozed blood and pus and gave their illness its name: the “Black Death.” The Sicilian authorities immediately told them to leave the harbor, but it was too late. Over the next five years, the mysterious Black Death kills more than 20 million people in Europe–almost
In 1347, rats on ships brought fleas infected with the bacillus that caused the Bubonic Plague, or Black Death. Within four years, between 1347 and 1351, the Death had spread across much of Europe. Between 25 and 50 percent of the population of Europe died of the disease.
The Black Death was three detrimental plagues that began in Mongolia, then swept across the Europe in the 1300’s, being the result of great famines that weakened Europe’s people. The plague was carried by fleas that were carried on rats, making colonists, and the poor more susceptible to the disease. It changed society by not only diminishing the population but also made the people skeptical of the Jews as if it was their doings. What made the plague so significant was how it wasn’t just amongst the poor; royalty, priests, armies, and the poor were all dying.
During the late 1330’s in Europe the population was growing dramatically. This caused food shortages, which began to worry the people. The summers and winters were harsh not helping with the crop harvesting. A famine broke out, and it is now known as the famine before the plague. In 1347, the Black Death began spreading across Western Europe. Over the time span of three years, the plague killed roughly one third of the population in Europe. It killed more people than any other epidemic or war up to this time. The Black Death, was caused by the fleas from rats and spread throughout Western Europe, however one effect of the Black Plague would be that it wiped out a great chunk of Europe’s population.
The Black Death was a plague that affected Europe between 1347 and 1351. It is said that the plague was caused by a bacteria called Yersinia pestis. The plague was created in the inner part of Asia and China, the plague got to the Europeans in 1347 when a Kipchak army overwhelmed a trading post in Crimea. The disease spread from the Mediterranean ports, then affecting Sicily, North Africa, Italy, Spain, England, France, Austria, Hungary, Switzerland, Germany, Scandinavia and the Baltic lands. It is said that the plague went to Europe many times and that it got into Europe from trade routes in waves from Asia, it came in the waves because the climate instability affected the population of rodents that were infected with the fleas that carried the plague. The plague were grouped lumps near the area of lymph.
