The Black Death, or the Plague, was multiple diseases that inflicted Europe immensely. People were dying every day that had the population decrease. This Plague came from fleas on black rats that traders carried over on their ships. Several diseases made up the plague that killed thousands every day in Europe.
     Europe had no clue how to flee or get rid of it. Many people beat themselves black and blue thinking that it would help God's anger on them, but the priests threatened to excommunicate them from the church if they continued. Many peasants would flee their villages at night if a neighbor fell ill. The guards wouldn't stop them either because they were afraid to touch them.
