Finally the nobles weren't meeting the demands of serfs so more and more of them left their manorial lifestyle. This really caused the medieval life to crumple and end. In conclusion the bubonic plague brought many social changes to Western
The Black Death accelerated the fall of feudalism accelerated the fall of feudalism by completely disrupting its systems. Consequently, the black death caused the stable system, known as feudalism to cease to exist in Europe. The Black death is a horrible disease that caused many symptoms in and on the body and was easily transmitted. There are a few different
This caused more soldiers to be killed in battle because they didn’t have the proper protection. The military abandoned drills so they were less experienced in the field. The military declined in men, and their strength decreased significantly. Another issue was that the Roman government failed to draft soldiers, which made the military count go plummeting down (Document 4). Many higher class people, such as senators, bureaucrats, and clergymen ovided the draft, and the military was weakened.
The Black Death The Black Death, also known as the Bubonic Plague, was one of the biggest pandemics in the world. It started to spread from Eastern China, to Europe in the early 1300’s, and it reoccurred multiple times during the years to come. Merchant ships and rodents were the two main ways this disease spread and infected humans (The Black Death 1348). The symptoms for this plague were extremely painful and death was the most likely outcome in most cases. Over 50 million people died.
What were the repercussions of losing one third of the general population? The Black Death was an influential factor in many societal changes that occurred during the 14th century. These changes were the depopulation of Europe, reduced labor force, rising wages, and increasing slave demand, government fixing wages promoting rebellion of the peasants and other workers. Depopulation in Western Europe occurred rapidly as during the 13th century after the sudden increase in population the Black Plague infected peasants which were usually farmers and also made up most of the population. This infection and
Harun Vemulapalli 5-24 Q3 Benchmark Constructed Response Prompt: Explain the effects of the Bubonic Plague on Medieval Europe The Bubonic Plague effected Medieval Europe in many ways. One way the Bubonic Plague effected Medieval Europe is that it caused one third of Europe's population to die due to the sickness spreading rapidly. For example, in Document 4, the chart includes, In all of Europe there were 53.2 million people there, but after the Plague, however, the population decreased about 30 percent leading the Post-Plague population to be 37 million. This piece of evidence shows how the Bubonic Plague effected Europe because it shows a serious decline in population which was 30% or one-third percent. The Plague spread rapidly by
Within the Triangle Waist Company factory a fire broke out, killing 145 employees. Throughout the early 1900s, labor conditions within the United States of America were unbearable. Including unreasonable pay, half-day shifts and unsafe factory environments, the day events would change would soon follow March 25, 1911. Enclosed within “The Triangle Fire” written by Jo Ann E. Argersinger, are wisely selected stories that speak to individuals reading them. Each document specifies the impact the Triangle Fire had on these young women, both mentally and physically.
Plagues have often afflicted the world and caused tremendous death throughout societies. Two of the most famous plagues in world history occurred in the years 431 and 552 BCE. These plagues were recorded by historians so as to not forget the tragic toll they played throughout the world. The two historians were Thucydides and Procopius. Thucydides, a historian of Greek tradition, became a victim of a plague brought on by war and documented the plague in Athens and Sparta.
In the Elizabethan Era there were multiple ways men and women could meet death. Many people were hit by history’s most famous plague-- The Bubonic Plague. The unintelligence of society was a major contributor to many deaths during this era. No one understood that when crimes happened there was punishment, that also led to multiple deaths for people in this time period. Diseases seemed to have wiped out most of the population in the Elizabethan Era.
In summary the middle ages were not a good period rather they were a time of darkness. To start, the Middle ages were a time of disease. The black plague swept through Europe during the middle ages. The black plague was spread by bites of infected rats and fleas, it was also transmitted pneumatically through the air (Black Death Presentation). It was devastating, the plague wiped out 20,000,000 people, that was nearly ⅓ of Europe’s population (Black Death Presentation).
Evidence of this was when war factories shut down because war supplies were no longer needed now that the war had ended, this left many people unemployed (Canadian War Museum). This shows that World War I was a means of income and jobs for many people and as it came to an end so did their career and wealth. Similarly, after the soldiers returned from war, they had no jobs. This was the result of Canada’s fragile economy, which had difficulty employing and supporting demobilized soldiers and left many people jobless(Reilly, Skikavich). The nation as a whole was upset with the government, as they believed that it was the government’s duty to find a concrete solution for this problem (Reilly, Skikavich).
The Black Plague is known to be one of the most deadly pandemics in history, estimated to have killed 30-60% of Europe’s population in the series of outbreaks between the 14th and 18th centuries. The devastation of the plague was made much worse by the incomprehension of those affected by it. Y. Pestis, the bacteria which causes plague, was spread by infected hosts, including rats and fleas. However, the sparse knowledge of science and medicine led Europeans to blame other sources for the debilitating disease. Some believed the plague was the wrath of God, punishing the guilty for their sins.
This positive outlook was not kept for long and as the death rate piled up and nations were not able to feed their people, women growing accustomed to, ¨empty hands and still emptier stomachs,¨(Document 6). By 1916 the outlook had changed and many people did not glorify war but saw it as the devastating event it truly was. ¨Gone was the euphoria. Gone the Patriotic noise in the streets,¨ (Document 7), writes a German socialist Rosa Luxemburg who describes his town in which there was ¨misery and despair everywhere,¨ (Document 7). By 1916 the war had become unpopular and many were ready to be out of it
Throughout history, humans have faced disastrous catastrophes that they had to endure in order to survive. One of the most incomprehensible disasters for humanity was the Bubonic Plague, a disaster that transformed the European society, economy, and politics forever. Often referred to as the Black Plague or Black Death, the prelude of the tragedy began in 1300 when Europe experienced declining temperature and an increasing number of storms and violent rains, destroying the three most important crops: wheat, oats, and hay. This period is called the “Little Ice Age” and lasted until 1450, during which Europe was hit by another devastating event called the Great Famine (1315-1322). As the scarcity of crops spread, Europe rose the cost of grains,
During the Great Depression, many theaters started falling apart due to financial issues. Right then the federal theater project was created to help small theaters that were suffering from these financial issues. It was also created to bring back life to large theaters who couldn 't afford the needs to maintain a theater. The way that the this federal theater project helped was the government takes over your theater and maintains it but the catch is that you don 't have any control over it. For example “as the depression worsened, theatrical unions became unable to care for their own members” ( text 1, lines 15-17).
