Section Notes

Presenter: Michael Holm

In the middle of the 14th century, disease struck Europe on an unprecedented and unimaginable scale. The plague brought society to a standstill as death ripped through countries from the Mediterranean to England. In the process, it challenged and shattered social norms, economic systems, and religious beliefs. However, it also helped give birth to a new world and in the process provided survivors a new appreciation for both death and life. This talk traces the spread of the plague and its impact on societies and explores how disease can undermine the very things humans often assume are permanent.
