  2. A Deadly Disease

    In the mid-1300s, Italian writer Giovanni Boccaccio wrote The Decameron. It was a fictional account of a group of people living in Italy as a dreadful disease swept Europe. In the factual introduction to the novel, Boccaccio describes the horrors of the disease and the fear that overcame those who remained healthy.
    “The violence of this disease was such that the sick communicated it to the healthy who came near them, just as a fire catches anything dry or oily near it. And it even went further. To speak to or go near the sick brought infection and a common death to the living; and moreover, to touch the clothes or anything else the sick had touched or worn gave the disease to the person touching."
    When the disease had finally run its course, as much as one-third of the European population had died. However, the deadly disease known as the bubonic plague was only one of many threats to medieval society during the 1300s.
