ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the book "The Black Death Transformed: Disease and Culture in Early Renaissance Europe," by Samuel K. Cohn. Cohn draws upon an impressively wide range of narrative and qualitative sources. In doing so he sets out a remarkable array of evidence which indicates that in terms of its symptomatology, signs, virulence, epidemiology and mortality, the Black Death bore little resemblance to the rat and flea-dependent disease that is currently known to medical science. The student of history, sociology and medical history will find an astounding array of footnotes and appendices which will assist them in their endeavors.
