Synopsis: Plagues and epidemics have proven to be a formidable enemy to humanity since the dawn of civilization, taking millions of human lives and making enormous changes to our society. Throughout history, humans have made many significant medical developments in order to combat plagues; therefore, by analyzing how humans in the past fought against epidemics, our generation can learn invaluable lessons about controlling and stopping the ravage of plagues. This study examines the major medical developments in Europe that have contributed to the fight against plagues and how they affected the European medical community’s responses to infectious diseases since 1348.
