Long history, overextended worldview assumptions
August 23, 2020
Daniel Defoe’s account of the Plague in London would be a better read. It’s not as sweeping its view of history, but it would be more accurate and less hostile to people of faith.
The Hourly History pattern of hostility to faith continues with this book. Most portrayals in this book of the Church or people of faith are not flattering or are presented in a negative light.
One of the biggest problems it has is one of bifurcation: it insists on interpreting things as either only of faith or only of medicine. It continually implies it cannot be both. This continues with comments about how things “set the stage” for future history subsequent to the plagues described that it views as subordinating faith.
The most obvious mistake in hindsight, during 2020, that this book made was to assume that pandemics are a thing of the past and today are easily brought under control. One wonders if the author would be as ready to condemn the epidemiologists of our day when they are wrong as the author is of the leaders of the day described in this book.

I can tell the author of this has an axe to grind with God. He spends a chapter going on about how we really don’t know what happened, then turns around and laughs at people for viewing the plague through a religious lens.
Points out the primitive nature of their medical system and is unaware there is a Johns Hopkins from 2018 study that puts iatragenic deaths somewhere between 250,000 to 440,000 putting doctors at the third leading cause of death in America. That is excluding deaths like cancer where, because they have to disband if a cure is found, the American cancer society kills potential cures to cancer (cut poison burn is a good documentary to begin to look into this.)
The author uses loaded language to describe their medical system (primitive) which propagates something like a fallacy of “people outside modernity were so dumb” /”we know better now”.
This is disjointed, but it feels as though this guy readily ventures outside the scope of the black plague to give atheist/feminist propaganda, and he would also tell me how the worst people in the world are religious and conveniently forget characters like ghenges khan and Stalin.

Lately I’ve been reading a wole lot of these ‘Hourly History’ books but I gotta say that this one has been one of the best so far. I’ve always been interested in medieval history and the Black Death, although it was horrible, has also always fascinated me.
This book was very informative about the Black Death or “The Plague” as it was also known. I learned quite a few new things about it all that I didn’t know before. For example I didn’t know that “areas in Poland, Belgium and the mountainous Basque region largely escaped the Black Death, as did many other isolated alpine locations through the alps.” This is exactly why I read nonfiction, there’s always something new to learn about the subjects I’m interested in.
And as always with a Hourly History books, this one also can be read very quickly in less than an hour. I always tend to read these in one sitting because they’re always really engrossing. Highly recommended!
The disease that buried half the population in 14th century.
March 22, 2016
Mid-14th century history of the worst pandemic ever, the Bubonic Plague. The author details how Europe lost half of it’s population, other areas more or less than that. Because of poor records, the total is PROBABLY between 75 million and 200 million lives lost, more than both world wars and worldwide genocides combined. Other than disease-carrying rats transported between countries and atrocious sanitary conditions, some causes are enumerated but also stressed that these don’t explain the speed of disease traveling.
My favorite part is the author’s description of the world pre-pandemic. Europe belonged exclusively to the Catholic Church with forced tithing and illiterate serfs in the majority. After the horrors of coping with this disease, which seemed like the Apocalypse, and the church only causing more deaths by blaming sin as the cause, and losing millions of their faithful, this may have been the start of the Renaissance, may have started people to think for themselves rather than blindly following church doctrine that had no answers.
Some will complain that this is too short to qualify as a book. Personally I read all I wanted to of the fear, the terror, the sheer horror of watching neighbors and loved ones suffer, I just can’t imagine needing more information.
