In the late 1340s, a cataclysmic plague shook medieval Europe to its core. The bacterial disease known to us as the Black Death swept westward across the continent, leaving a path of destruction from Crimea and Constantinople to Italy, France, Spain, and ultimately most of Europe, traveling as far west as England and Iceland. Within these locations, the plague killed up to 50% of the population in less than 10 years-a staggering 75 million dead.
Many of us know the Black Death as a catastrophic event of the medieval world. But three vital elements of the story often go unrecognized:
The Black Death was arguably the most significant event in Western history, profoundly affecting every aspect of human life, from the economic and social to the political, religious, and cultural.
In its wake, the plague left a world that was utterly changed, forever altering the traditional structure of European societies and forcing a rethinking of every single system of Western civilization: food production and trade, the Church, political institutions, law, art, and more.
In large measure, by the profundity of the changes it brought, the Black Death produced the modern world we live in today.
While the story of the Black Death is one of destruction and loss, its breathtaking scope and effects make it one of the most compelling and deeply intriguing episodes in human history. Understanding the remarkable unfolding of the plague and its aftermath provides a highly revealing window not only on the medieval world but also on the forces that brought about the Renaissance, the Protestant Reformation, and modernity itself.
Speaking to the full magnitude of this world-changing historical moment, The Black Death: The World's Most Devastating Plague, taught by celebrated medievalist Dorsey Armstrong of Purdue University, takes you on an unforgettable excursion into the time period of the plague, its full human repercussions, and its transformative effects on European civilization.
A Catastrophe Unprecedented in Human Experience
In 24 richly absorbing lectures, you'll follow the path of the epidemic in its complete trajectory across medieval Europe. You'll examine the epidemiological causes of the disaster; the social panic it spawned; its influence on religion, society, politics, economics, and art; and the long-term consequences for a continent that, less than two centuries later, would have the technology and the wherewithal to explore a new world.
In the process, you'll learn about these remarkable and emblematic effects of the Black Death:
By revealing the corruption and inadequacies of the Church in the face of people's desperate need, the plague sowed the seeds of the Reformation.
The plague upended the class system in Europe, permanently changing the balance of power between laborers and lords, peasants and nobles.
The epidemic transformed social opportunities for the working and merchant classes: peasants could become clergy, serfs could become tenant farmers, merchants could marry into the nobility, and women could enter trades and professions.
Perhaps most surprising of all, those who survived the plague were often wealthier than they'd been before, and had access to more opportunities.
These changes utterly upended structures of social, economic, and religious power that had been in place for centuries, leaving chaos in their wake-and room for new ideas and institutions to arise.
