Riassunto: In this fresh approach to the history of the Black Death, John Hatcher, a world-renowned scholar of the Middle Ages, recreates everyday life in a mid-fourteenth century rural English village. By focusing on the experiences of ordinary villagers as they lived?and died?during the Black Death (1345?50 AD), Hatcher vividly places the reader directly into those tumultuous years and describes in fascinating detail the day-to-day existence of people struggling with the tragic effects of the plague. Dramatic scenes portray how contemporaries must have experienced and thought about the momentous events?and how they tried to make sense of it all.
L'autore: John Hatcher, a leading expert in medieval and early modern social and economic history, is Professor of Economic and Social History and Chairman of the History Faculty at the University of Cambridge.

Descrizione libro Weidenfeld & Nicolson, London England, 2008. Cloth. Condizione libro: Fine. Condizione sovraccoperta: Very Good. First Edition. Hardback. First Edition. The Black Death. The Black Death remains the greatest natural disaster to befall humanity. Within the space of a few years in the mid-fourteenth century this horrific pestilence swept across the known world wiping out some 40 per cent of the population. Yet the sources available on the Black Death reveal only part of the story. The intimate history of the plague, as witnessed by the ordinary people who experienced it, was never recorded. Focusing on the Suffolk village of Walsham, the author vividly recreates the lives and deaths of the ordinary people forced to live through these terrifying and uncertain times. His narrative is peopled with characters developed from the villagers named in surviving records. With scrupulous attention to historical sources, he describes in unique detail what the parishioners experienced, what they knew and what they believed. A series of dramatic scenes portray how contemporaries must have experienced the momentous events. Rumours, fears, hysteria and recrimination abounded as the epidemic drew closer. With the plague at its peak, as many as fifty villagers a day were wiped out by the pestilence. We witness the full horror of the disease for those who succumbed to it and for those who survived. The pressure on the clergy was overwhelming, as they struggled to fulfil their roles both as ministers to the dying and as spiritual guides to the parishioners left bewildered and bereft by the extent of the devastation. In a gripping and historically precise narrative, the author probes deeper into this extraordinary event than hhistorians have in the past, to tell the stories of the individuals who lived and died in a time of unprecendented turmoil and upheaval.
