dc.description.abstractDoubtless the bubonic plague epidemic of 1348 was one of the most catastrophic events to ever affect Europe. Its immediate effects were in themselves traumatic enough; in addition to a mortality estimated by some to be as high as half the population, profound psychological phenomena, such as extreme anti-Sexai-tism, Flagellism, and choriomanias profoundly influenced the outlook of all Europeans. However, the far-reaching effects of the Black Death's ravage of the continent are yet being reflected in the religion, art, literature, superstition, and symbolism of Western civilization.
