The Late Middle Ages had seen a rise in Western Europe's population in previous centuries, but these gains were almost entirely erased as the plague spread rapidly across all of Europe from 1346-1353. With a medieval understanding of medicine, diagnosis, and illness, nobody understood what caused Black Death or how to truly treat it. As a result, many religious people assumed it was divine retribution, while superstitious and suspicious citizens saw a nefarious human plot involved and persecuted certain minority groups among them.

Easy to understand
A clear explanation of the scope and importance of the Black Death with an emphasis on the changes it caused in Medieval Europe.

Accounts from people who lived through the Black Death. Very interesting how they describe the mass population, dealing with the plague and how peoples habits changed.
