Abstract:

Killing one third of Europe's population in just three years and ravaging the flourishing cities of Italy, France, Germany, England, and Spain, the Black Death swept across the continent at an inconceivable rate. Through chilling reenactments, interviews with experts and historians, and excerpts from original accounts, discover the origins, progress, and cultural repercussions of the Plague's reign of terror. Many thought it was punishment by God, others believed it was spread by contaminated air. How did some survive? Are we vulnerable to an outbreak of this proportion today?
