TheBlack Death By Jesus Santiago

A plague epidemic swept through Europe from 1348 through 1351, killing an estimated 25–60% of Europeans.The exact death toll from the Black Death is difficult to measure from medieval sources.The term "Black Death" is recent. During the plague, it was called "the Great Mortality" or "the Pestilence." Although the period known as the Black Death ended in 1351, the plague continued to return to Europe, with epidemics every few years through the end of the 15th century.The Black Death was the second plague pandemic of the Middle Ages. Justinian’s Plague in the 6th century was deadly and widespread, but did not create the same devastation as the second pandemic.
