But which was more significant? In this essay I will explain the two events and give my opinion on which event was more significant. The first of the two events was the Black Death. The Black Death was a terrible plague that happened in the 1300s. The disease spread from nation to nation, killing millions of people and seriously affecting their lives especially Britain.
The Black Death had a huge impact on all aspects of Medieval society. The peak of the Black Death resulted in a huge population loss for the city of London, and all over the world. Treatments and theories about the causes of the plague were prevalent in many aspects of life. Initially many believed plagues to be the result of evil spirits. For this reason, people would often huddle together to keep the spirits away.
Fear and anguish brought out some of the worst qualities in the villagers causing them to turn against one another creating anger, conflict and damage unto one another. In turn these actions fueled by superstition, hysteria and ignorance could become just as fatal as the plague itself. The bubonic plague attacks many individuals in the village as it delivers continuous grief and loss to the whole town. Brooks structures her novel as a non-linear timeline as it jumps backwards and forwards starting after the events of the plague giving hints of what has caused the change in the community. Undoubtedly, the plague causes the disintegration of families in the town.
WHAT IS IT PART Well the black death is one of the most devastating pandemics in human history, a plague that swept through Europe and Asia which killed millions in the 1300's. A plague is a disease that spreads extremely quickly and kills many people violently. Most scientist think that the Black Death was caused by a type of bacteria called Yersinia Pestis carried by the oriental rat flea. These fleas infested black rats and unfortunately, due to the unsanitary lifestyles of humans during the Middle Ages, these rats were literally everywhere. Once contracted by a human the disease became airborne.
The black death killed millions of people, and there was so many dumb and pretty weird ideas for helping and getting rid of the black death that almost nobody lived. Here are the weird ideas to stop the black death to try to get rid of the smell of the dead and they dying the people carried flowers with them, to try and cure it they put mercury on them and put them in the in a oven, it turns out the oil was poisonous and the heat from the oven caused burns, since this was unknown to the doctors of the middle ages the used leeches, yes LEECHES to try and suck out the bad blood, and since leeches did not know bad blood from
The Huguenot political movement was crippled by the loss of many of its prominent aristocratic leaders, as well as many re-conversions by the rank and file, and those who remained were increasingly radicalized. Though by no means unique, it "was the worst of the century's religious massacres."  Throughout Europe, it "printed on Protestant minds the indelible conviction that Catholicism was a bloody and treacherous
The new weapon napalm was used to burn villages many lives in Vietnam were lost as they were in South Africa. Both countries were both ruins and its people were angry as is shown in the language of the two poems. Both these poems are full of bitterness. The black poet who wrote Nothing’s Changed uses a vicious irony “we know where we belong” to show that he feels blacks and whites will never truly reconcile. His pent - up rage is expressed again in the final stanza “ Hands burn for a stone, a bomb to shiver down the glass”.
What is the Black Death? The Black Death, also know as the black Plague, was a natural disaster that happened in Europe around 1347. The illness came in three forms bubonic, pneumonic, and septicemic all three forms were said to kill viciously. The type that struck Europe was the bubonic, it was said to develop from fleas that lived on rodents, and the rodent were blood sucking pesticide that soon spread many diseases through humans (Cartwright, 1991). The Black Death was the biggest disaster during the time and it spread fast.
The collapse of the Roman Empire was a calamity; it leads to the Dark (Middle) Ages. Seeing all the bad that came of it, the destruction of art, the collapse of great cities, the deterioration of the system of roads, the ruin of the Mediterranean trade, and the loss of European unity--it's difficult to imagine any good came of it. But some good did result. The break up of the empire led to the abolition of slavery in Europe. Of course, this, in turn, led to more poverty and the increase of latifundia because the poor people lost their land to the aristocrats.
Dadaism and Surrealism Art Movements| | Barbara D Gentry| 11/13/2013| History of the art movements of Dada and Surrealism| The years between 1914 and 1918 were tumultuous ones. The world had broken out in a full scale war, beginning in Europe, with the assassination of the extremely disliked Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the Archduke of Austria Hungary, and his wife. The assassination was merely the catalyst to the mounting political tensions in Europe at that time. Many of Europe’s artists were horrified by slaughters being committed on a daily basis in the name of war and the social injustice they perceived, by the middle and upper class citizens. Furthermore, they were disgusted by the relentless quest to acquire more land and money by the various European nations.
