How did the Black Death Affect Worldview
Transcript of How did the Black Death Affect Worldview
The Black Death by Phyllis Corzine
Our Worldview Textbook
www.wikipedia.org The disease spread by air and contact. There were dead bodies lying on the streets, and contact with these might have given them the disease. Also, any caretaker or family of the victims were likely to get the disease, it was highly infectious, so it was best to avoid all people of the disease. Unfortunately, the survival rate was less than half. The black death is believed to start in the Gobi desert. It then spread to Europe by rats, which traveled on ships and caravans meant for trading. In a similar way, the Plague traveled to Africa on the trade route. In 1348, the Black Death reached Cairo, killing about 200,00 people. At its peak Alexandra, a city of 100,000, it killed around 750 people a day. The death rate varied in each city. Between October 1347 and December 1347, 800 people died in Paris each day, while in Avignon, 400 people died daily. An estimate over 7000 people died each day. The Black Death came with many consequences and affects. Some of them include peasants moving from the country to towns, increase in prices and wages, greater value placed on labour, the feudal system declined, and the black death was responsible for it. Also, farming land was given over to pasturing, which gave a boost to the cloth and woolen industry and influences from churches declined, as people became disillusioned with it. Also, Jewish people were targeted even more, them fleeing to Poland and Russia, and it led to distrust in God and the church as people realized religion couldn't stop the disease from spreading.
