The Varied look of the Ancient Black Death D.18.12.23

22 Dec

Those with septicaemic would die quickly, before any obvious symptoms had appeared. Those with respiratory also died quickly, but not before developing evident symptoms such as a fever, coughing up blood, and then of course, dying.
There were other camps that thought the plague was somehow a punishment from God for their sins. In order to offer up penance, groups known as the Flagellanti marched through streets throughout Europe beating themselves in response to the plague.
While groups like the Flagellanti saw themselves as the cause, others throughout Europe saw that there was someone else who must be to blame. As a result, in some communities, different types of pogroms were instituted against Jewish populations in order to punish and blame them as a source of the plague.
