About this Course

In this course, Professor Miri Rubin (Queen Mary, University of London) explores the Black Death. Firstly, we look at what the Black Death was and where it came from. We then have a look at the social and economic effects of such a vast mortality. After this, we examine how medieval society dealt with the Black Death and how it transformed how death was viewed. Finally, we look at the Black Death's effect on public health in the centuries that followed.
