Description

Between August and December 1348, 14,000 people died in Dublin from the plague, a rate of 100 a day. This horrendous disease was carried to its victims by rats, and once infected, those victims could die within 3 days. This is the only book to investigate the disease and its effects specifically in Dublin. Maria Kelly examines the fear, panic, and superstition surrounding the outbreak that many believed was a punishment from God for their sins.show more
