Just in Europe did it kill one-third of their population, meanwhile completely destroying two-thirds of China’s population, and decimating many Muslin towns. The disease flared and raged so quickly there wasn’t enough time to bury all the dead, so they mainly waited until the end and held a large memorial service. The disease itself was ripping apart the very fabric of society. The virus attacks the lymph nodes and lungs. The buboes formed from the virus are usually formed in the groin or armpit depending on the closest lymph node.
Another form...in which boils erupt under the armpits, a third form in which people of both sexes are attacked in the groin.” In Conclusion, The Black Death is one of the worst disasters to ever sweep across Europe. Its effect were known worldwide, even though it was hitting the hardest in Europe. The plague affected Europe in many different ways whether they were bad or good. Even though there was more food and land as a result of it, the plague was absolutely devastating to Europe by knocking out about one-third of its population. The plague should be known today as the worst disease to ever hit, not only Europe, but the world and it should never be forgotten.
The Black Plague changed the world in several different ways. It resulted in medical advances and architectural setbacks. In the 1300's one of the most fearful and deadliest diseases known to humans erupted somewhere in Central Asia; the Black Plague. It came to England in 1348 and for over three centuries the Black Plague remained a continual fear in the everyday life of citizens in Europe. The Plague struck first along the northern edge of the Black Sea in 1348, where it killed and estimated eighty eight thousand people in less than three months.
City dwellers were hit the hardest due to the fact of crowded streets and the lack of sanitation. Up until the mid-15th century, recurrent epidemics prevented the recovery of Europe’s population to pre-plague levels. The Black Death was an important turning point for the history of Europe. This time was “the beginning of the end of the medieval period and the start of a social transformation of the continent.” The social and economic impacts of the plague were so huge, economics, politics and the European society would never be the same again. The plague took on three different forms, each with its own unique way of killing.
It is apparent though, in both situations that the primary differences were the people who chose to take a stance, as well as their motivators and ultimate pursuits. The Peasants’ Revolt of 1381 came to be due to many varying economic and political tensions of the 14th century. Perhaps one of the biggest motivators for this uprising began with the Black Death, which occurred in the mid 14th century beginning in England in 1348. The Black Death, more commonly known as the bubonic plague, rapidly destroyed the population of England, and by the year 1400, the country was left with approximately half of the amount of people than were present nearly 100 years prior to the plague. This dramatic decrease in population left the country in an economic crisis.
The aim of this investigation is to answer the question how did the Black Death affect Europe in the Middle Ages. Because the Black Death was one of the most devastating pandemics in human history, killing up to a third of the population, it is a significant topic to address. Some issues that must be addressed with this topic are how the black plague affected primarily Europe on a social, political, and economic level. The focus will be from 1347 to 1351, when the plague ran its course, but will also look at the aftermath up to modern times. The book The Black Death by Daniel Cohen and Robert S. Giblin’s book The Black Death; Natural and Human Disaster in Medieval Europe both look like promising resources to successfully complete the investigation.
to the famous Black Death in 1346, people from all over the world have been caught in chaos with insufficient treatments and no reliable way of preventing this horrible disease from spreading. Today, vast medical advancements have yielded successful treatments for the plague, but people are still highly susceptible to widespread disaster if a bioterrorist attack does manage to occur. In 430-26 B.C. during the Peloponnesian War, which was fought between Sparta and Athens, overcrowded conditions in the cities allowed plague to spread quickly. It claimed tens of thousands of victims including Pericles, the former leader of Athens.
