Latin expressions "pestis" and "pestillentia", as also the Greek word "o loimos", mean the same - plague, dying, death, contagion. The Czech word "mor" has the same root as "mreni" dying and "smrt", death. One of forms of plague received an all-telling nickname - Black Death.
There are many historical records about plague, even from Ancient Greece and Rome but the first confirmed epidemy of plague came to Europe in 1347. During the siege of the city of Kaffa the Tartars threw with catapults into the city corpses of people who died on a new, unknown disease which came from the East. The disease then spread rapidly throughout Europe. The results of the first epidemy were horrible - about one half of the inhabitants of Europe died but in some cities only every tenth survived. According to some historical records, about 25.000.000 to 46.000 000 people died. Ancient historian speaks about 10.000 people dying during one day in Constantinopole. Then many other epidemies continued. The last epidemy was in Manguria in 1910 (pulmonary form with 100% mortality).
Although a lot of effort was done to avoid or to fight the disease, the course was the same. Treated the best possible way or not treated at all, everybody died. Plague was fair to all, it killed the beggars and the kings. There was only one way of survival - running away. But it supported the spread of the disease. As the cause of disease, the rotten air and water came into consideration. Some enlightened people found the connection between the ill and the dead rats and the disease. "If dead rats are found on the streets, the plague is approaching." But many people thought the disease had come because of their sins. It is even written in the Apocalypse "And I looked, and there was a pale green horse. The horseman on it was named Death, and Hades was following him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill by the sword/famine/plague/wild animals of the Earth. " (Re 6:8). It sometimes led to a religious fanatism. The flagellants appeared - people who tortured themselves with whips as an expression of their repentance. The worst was when people considered some minority, usually Jews, to be responsible for the disease. The pogroms often followed. Sometimes, from fear of the disease, still living ill people were burnt in their own houses.
After the epidemy finished, the social structures were destroyed. There was nobody who would have worked in the fields, domestic animals ran away. Wolves came from the forests. Most of the surviving people had serious complications of the disease, many months were necessary for full recovery. There was nobody who could help them. The robbers took what was still left.
"The plague was everywhere. Nearly in every house there was somebody who was ill. The doctors refused to examine the patients because of the fear of contagion, and if some of them, after receiving a huge sum of gold, came to the patient, dressed in a long black coat and a mask with aromatic herbs, he only examined his pulse, reversing his face. But most of them fled from the city as the first ... Even the closest relatives of patients left them because of fear. They told them they would go for help but they did not return. And if he asked them not to leave because he had a fear to stay alone, they waited until he fell asleep and then they left. Son left his mother, brother his sister, husband his wife. And if the patient felt better the next morning he found himself alone. And he was so weak that he could not call anybody. And even if somebody heard the weak voice of the ill, who would dare to come to the plague house? ... At the very beginning dead people were burried at the cemetry but then there were too many. A huge grave was dug next to the church. People called "vultures" walked during the night through the city and loaded the corpses on carriages. In the morning the layer of dead bodies was covered with earth and the following night a new layer of corpses was laid. During the epidemy, from March to October 96.000 people died in Florence."
