Many Clergymen acted in a disobedient way and were crass to their most loyal of followers. Often, they were uneducated or even illiterate and as a result, they failed to administer the sacraments as what was expected of them.

Veronica Griffin Mr. David Dudley English III AP 4 February 2013 How the Bubonic Plague Affected Shakespeare and His Plays During the Elizabethan Era, when Shakespeare lived, there were many outbreaks of the Bubonic Plague, also known as the Black Death. It spread all over London, in both heavily populated areas and the more rural, farming areas. This disease, as it spread through London, also had great affects on Shakespeare, his life, as well as his plays.

Sadly, both died of assassination by people who did not agree with them. Nonviolence usually makes the other party skeptical on whether they should use force and punish people that aren’t really doing anything wrong. Martin Luther King Jr. and Gandhi used boycotting to get the attention of either America or England. Before hearing of Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr. believed very heavily in Christianity and wasn’t sure how to approach his conflict. Unlike Martin Luther King Jr., Gandhi thought that all religions were no a part of the discrimination going on, only the ruling of countries.

There are many killers in the history of the world, like serial killers or murders, but nothing like The Black Death. This plague was fatal; it had no cure and no proves of its creation or origin. It’s frightening and scary. It arrived in Europe in October 1347 by twelve Genoese ships coming from a voyage though the back sea. Sailors abroad arrived dead or gravely sick, with mysterious black boils all over them, which gave this disease its name “The Black Death”.
