Expected Outcomes: Through witnessing the writings of those that experienced the Black Death via video re-enactment, you will gain insight into the thinking of people in the 14th century, and how their ways of thinking and knowing influenced their behavior.

You may address any aspect of the video that you found interesting or compelling. If you’re not sure how to get started or what to discuss, here are a few questions you may want to consider:

  • Given the medieval period (1340s) in which it occurred, did you find any of the reactions and responses of the European people and/or government and religious officials to the bubonic plague epidemic shocking or surprising? If so, which ones and why? If not, why not?
  • If a deadly new epidemic with no definitive prevention (such as a vaccine) or effective cure were to strike the U.S. in modern times, do you think people would react with violence and/or with an “every person for him/herself” attitude (as people in Europe did in the 1340s)? Why or why not?
  • Can you think of any examples to back up your opinion, or find examples on the internet? What are those examples? If you’ve seen the 2011 movie, Contagion, you can discuss the scenarios portrayed in the movie in the context of what you’ve learned about the bubonic plague epidemic.

  • Do we see some of the same or related behaviors exhibited during out current COVID-19 pandemic?
