History of the Black Death - Part One 5

The Black Death was the greatest pandemic in history. While it was estimated that 30-40% of Europe perished, world wide the death toll came to over 200 million. The story of the Plague is the story of a perfect storm where just the right developments in history met one the fiercest of killers with an equally powerful vector of transmission.

This is the first of three parts on the Black Death - we'll get back to the Reconquista in no time. Hope you don't mind the side journey.
1) Please don't forget to spread word about the podcast and share this on social media. Now more than ever - as they say, those who forget the past. . .
2) I usually create these videos while my little one takes his nap - thus I use headphones in the creation process. Try listening on headphones, it may be a better sound experience
3) HUGH thanks to History Marche, Embrace History, and Al Muqaddemah. Couldn't have made this video without their help. Please check out their channels -the links are below!
In the meantime - everyone stay safe in our modern pandemic!

Fun fact: It was the Venetians who introduced the concept of "quarantine" to control the outbreak of the Plague. Ships that were suspected to carry the Plague had to stay in an isolated place for 40 days. In fact, the word "quarantine" ("quarantena" in Italian) is related to the Italian phrase "quaranta giorni" ("forty days"). Originally the word "quarantine" referred to this forty-days quarantine (the "quarantena") imposed by the Venetians. Nowadays, this word is used for all types of quarantine (regardless of the length/method).

I've never had the request to show bodies being launched over the walls so that was interesting to film, a pretty grim event overall for everyone.

Its nice to see that nearly 700 years later, people are just as clueless about epidemiology

I am actually learning about this in history right now. The teacher assigned this video. I’m in 7th grade.

This did not disappoint my friend: truly fantastic and factually accurate. I'm glad that you made a particular emphasis in distinguishing yersinia pestis as a bacteria (you know...given the viral obsession). I give it my scientific seal of approval!

PS: just to illustrate how formidable a foe the bubonic plague truly is, the mortality rate can still be as high as 15% even with antibiotics. CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) still publishes reports on the plague during its seasonal peak - sadly, the plague is endemic to Arizona, New Mexico, and the rest of the 4 corners states in several rodent vectors (mainly prairie dog as well as squirrels and rabbits to a lesser extent). Thankfully we rarely see the pneumonic plague - it's far deadlier relative - outside of Madagascar.

Do you remember the goal of Thanos in the Avengers, to kill 1/2 of everything, and thus free up resources for a bright new
Well, I think that was inspired by the Black Plague. True, it was horrific, and killed 1/2 of people.
This new shortage of people changed Europe.
1.) Labor became more valuable. Serfs were now sought by other Lords. The Serf system broke down, and people became free to move.
2.) Thus, towns grew. Also, pay grew, since labor was more valuable.
Europe became free because of the Black Death. Ended Serfdom, creating the situation enabling the Renaissance.
So, Thanos wasn't such a bad guy after all, was he??

10 years ago I was reading on my BlackBerry that several vials of the plaque were stolen from a lab in Colorado. And since then there has been cases of it in Colorado

Excellently done. I avidly research on the plague and in a few short minutes you managed to cover what 3 documentarys managed in 3 hours. I look foward to more plague ridden history!
