With the assistance of The Great Courses: The Black Death by Professor Dorsey Armstrong, we will explore one of the most catastrophic events with widespread death and destruction occurring in 1347–1451 when the Plague swept thru Medieval Europe. It is estimated that 1/3–1/2 of the population died, in numbers approximately 25–50 million individuals to include the rich, the poor, the religious, and the powerful. We will explore what were the circumstances that possibly led to this disaster, what were the social and medical resources at the time, how did the Plague move from place to place, what was its cause? Could this happen again? Of note, we will, at times, view some very graphic representations of what happened.
