During the 14th century, the bubonic plague, known as the Black plague, Black death, or Great Pestilence, swept across Europe. Estimates of deaths vary greatly as many likely passed without record, yet roughly 25-50 million Europeans died during the pandemic. This equates to 30-60% of the total population. However, the actions taken against a certain group of survivors elevates this horrific event from a catastrophe to a holocaust.
At the time, the cause of the plague was unknown. Today, the contagious bacterial disease is believe to have been spread by fleas living on rats. Historians suspect the disease started in Asia and was unknowingly dispersed along a trade route, known as the Silk Road, by Mongols. Connecting China to India, North Africa, Rome, the Middle East, and Europe, food sacks exposed to the rats and fleas were hauled along these routes, infecting consumers throughout these areas.
Europe’s outbreak began in 1348, skipping some cities while devastating others. Without an explanation for the disease and death, Christians argued it resulted from God’s wrath, or punishment, for their individual sins. Muslims in the Middle East widely accepted this reasoning, even killing a holy man for suggesting the disease spread through the air.
