The  Path of the Black  Plague

       

          Moans of pain, forgotten hope, and an endless loss of faith are the untold truths of the Bubonic Plague, better known as the Black Plague which Occurred during the 1300 hundreds. The black plague was said to spread like wild fire though out Europe; and to think it all began with fleas and rats which where the main carriers of the disease, however take in mind that during the 1300 hundreds many people lived in total filth and may have only washed/bathed twice a month. Due to close villages and crowded cities, once the bubonic disease began there was little chance of stopping it, with very little knowledge of medicine, doctors had no cure for the deadly plague in which  After five years, 25 million people were dead--one-third of Europe's people.

"Even when the worst was over, smaller outbreaks continued, not just for years, but for centuries. The survivors lived in constant fear of the plague's return, and the disease did not disappear until the 1600s. (Rice, npage)"
