The effect of the Bubonic plague

Map of the Byzantium Empire
 The Bubonic plague did not only annihilate the European civilization, it also destroyed the Byzantium Empire, (or Eastern Roman Empire), in India, and also invaded the Mediterranean Sea. Some people died without any symptoms, and that disease was called the "horrible cow disease", better known as the "mad cow disease." The mad cow disease occured when people fed cows rancid meat and then drank their milk or ate their meat. Something like the mad cow disease caused AIDS in East Africa in the 1930's, but with chimpanzees. This is a small portion of how people died during the Bubonic plague.

The Europeans during this period thought that cats were evil, so they had house cats killed.  This caused the rat population to rocket skyward. The fleas then spread in thousands, therefore decreasing the human population.

The childhood song, "Ring around the Rosy" was actually born from the Bubonic plague.
The phrase, "Ring around the rosy" refers to the buboes which were rosy in color and ring shaped.
The phrase, "Pocket full of posies" refers to how people carried flowers with them, to deal with the stench of the dead bodies, also with the belief that the plague was in the air, so they kept the air smelling sweet with the flowers.
The phrase, "Ashes, ashes" refers to the cremation of dead bodies.
The phrase, "We all fall down" was how people died in great numbers.

The symbol for the bubonic plague is the moon of cold darkness, a scary thought. When you look up at the moon, what you might feel is a warm happiness, the wonders of the moon. What that description makes you think of is that when you look up at the stars, there is no one there for you, no comfort of anyone.
There was a dance in Europe called, "The Dance of Death." It was about skeletons rising from foggy graves in unison. The Bubonic plague was probably what brought about this dance. This was a very popular form of art in the century after the plague. This shows how the Bubonic plague era, a time of suffering and despair, could still inspire something beautiful, but it also inspired something very big: stories, nightmares, pain, scientific discovery, and death.

According to David Herlihy, the Bubonic Pague might have caused the Italian Renaissance by breaking up their culture. The biomedical trauma might have caused the Italian Renaissance? Who would have guessed? This is a complicated concept, how everything went so smoothly for the Bubonic plague. It was a very strong and powerful thing. Some people even used the Bubonic plague to kill enemies.

The Bubonic plague also might have resulted in the rise of a class of peasants called yeomen. The problem started at the summer harvest of 1349, when the grains started "rotting." This caused labor shortages, because of lack of food. Because of that, yeomen peasants could work for higher wages. Landlords eventually had to give in to yeomen peasant demands.
 Also, in the 1300's and the 1400's, women took a prominent role in productivy, giving them more independance.

 Other Effects

Since so many people passed away, young men could become priests at 20 instead of 25. Also, women could become priests, though not many. The Lollards, (feared people), attacked the church leadership, and ecclesiastical mortality. 

The century following the Bubonic plague was marked by the rise of intense mystery, and hysteria.

These are a lot of things that the Bubonic plague caused, and that is why it was not only horrible, it was horrible afterwards, like a disgusting medicine that tastes bad on the way down, and then leaves an even more horrible aftertaste.
