“When he learned that the Christians in Jerusalem, Alexandria, and Carthage were living in poverty, he was moved by their impoverished condition and used to send money.” “It was chiefly for this reason that he struck up friendships with the kings overseas, so that the poor Christians living under their rule might receive some relief and assistance” (27). Not only did Charles help the poor but Charles but also he also helps renovate the church of St. Peters the Apostle. Charles loved the church however he only visited this church a total of four to during his reign as king. Charles last visit to Rome was to help restore the state of the church.

The virus in Contagion was similar to Yellow Fever; it caused mass destruction and panic. Neither disease showed mercy. Frightened of the disease, people moved in fear for their lives. In The American Plague, all that was left of Memphis was the poor, who had no chance of escape. In the movie Contagion, Mitch Emhoff attempted to send his daughter to her mother’s.
With poor sanitation, limited medical knowledge, and frequent wars, early death was commonplace during the Middle Ages. However, during the time of the plague, death ravaged the countryside killing between one-third and one-half of the population. People who contracted this illness often died within a few days of manifesting the symptoms of headaches, high fevers, and excruciating pain in the arms and legs. Most people agree that the disease spread from China to Europe by traders, traveling along the Silk Road. Merchant boats with stow-away rats infested with fleas carried the illness from port to port.
Even though this was a time for colonization, Colonists faced numerous problems. Colonists died in Early Jamestown because of many reasons.

When at war , tribes showed little mercy, killing many women and children. Shocking, right? Secondly cities shrank in size and population. The population mainly shrunk because of the many deaths when Rome was attacked, people also flead from the country of Rome when the attack was going on. Many people were also sick after the war
One night He visited me, kissed me and told me, “I love you." In religious art, I am one of the very few Saints painted with the Holy Child. There is another legend where a mother 's boy drowned in a tub, and the mother asked me to revive him. I did, and she donated her son 's weight in bread to the poor. A French woman also asked me to find her keys, and when she found them she donated bread to the poor as well.
There is always a counterbalance for everything which is why humans were given the freedom to choose whether to follow the good or evil because evil will always exist with good. Therefore, the Word of God plays an important role of determining what is good which Saint Ignatius listened and obeyed throughout his life journey. The movie, Ignacio De Loyola, which portrays Ignatius ' life, has led me to realize as to how God can turn my lowest points into opportunities for Him to reveal Himself as well as how the powers of darkness continues to linger upon the lives of Christians each day. Ignacio de Loyola encountered a desolating experience when he received a fatal injury during the Battle of Pamplona which led him to know about God 's love and to sacrifice his vices and worldly possessions for the glory of God. I was amazed by how God was able to turn his misery into blessings.
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
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).
Catholic devotees of Saint Rose of Lima attributed many miracles. One of the best known miracles was the healing of patients with the help of a picture of Jesus, whom she called "Child doctor". Also, another miracle of her was when she prayed along with dozens of faithful at the chapel of San Geronimo in Callao, Lima for the protection of Lima when the city was threatened by the pirate Joris Spilbergen. Then, Saint Rose had a rooster that looked ill and did not sing. When Rose knew that her mother wanted to cook the rooster she said that if he did not sing, her mother would kill him.
During the thirteenth century, a disease known as the Black Death spread from Asia to Europe at an alarming speed. It travelled through the trade routes, in the form of infected fleas carried from town to town on rats causing catastrophic loses of population . The Black Death consisted of two forms of the disease; the pneumonic plague, and the bubonic plague . Since it was unknown as to what caused the disease at the time, their responses to the plague’s outbreak were almost entirely futile. Since religion was a big factor in nearly everybody’s lives, the records of the Black Death that we do have are heavily influenced by religion, and as such, their views strongly swayed things like treatments and medicine that were used against the plague.
The Black Death, over a span of five years, killed 25 million people and it was almost impossible to survive. First, the Plague was just an outbreak of the bubonic plague, which is a disease, created by the bacteria Yersinia Pestis. The first known case of the Black Plague was recorded in China, 224 B.C.E. In 1348, twelve Genoese boats docked at the Sicilian port of Messina, Italy, after they had finished sailing the Black Sea. Rats that lived on the ships spread the Plague to Britain in 1348.
