1. The Spread of the Black Death
About this Lecture
In this module, we look at some of the fundamental questions in relation to the Black Death: (i) what was it?; (ii) where did it come from?; (iii) and what was its effect?
In this course, Professor Miri Rubin (Queen Mary, University of London) explores the Black Death. Firstly, we look at what the Black Death was and where it came from. We then have a look at the social and economic effects of such a vast mortality. After this, we examine how medieval society dealt with the Black Death and how it transformed how death was viewed. Finally, we look at the Black Death's effect on public health in the centuries that followed.
Miri Rubin is a professor of medieval and early modern history at Queen Mary University. Her research focuses on the exploration of themes in the religious culture of Europe.
