Maia Martin History 131.13 Dr. Markus April 7, 2017 Annotated Bibliography for research on Black Death in Europe (1347 – 1352 CE) Cohn, Samuel K., Jr. "The Black Death: End of a Paradigm." The American Historical Review 107, no. 3 (June 2002), 703-738 Cohn’s article identifies the major difference between the Black Death and the bubonic plague. He says that although many of the symptoms were the same between the two diseases, they were not the same thing; the bubonic plague was spread through the fleas of rats and other rodents while the Black Death was a sexually transmitted disease – meaning people spread it to other people through use of bodily fluids. This source is reliable because it is commonly mistaken that the Black Death is just another name for the bubonic plague, and Cohn goes into detail about how they are different by comparing their symptoms, treatments, and death rates. Before reading this article, I thought that the Black Death and the bubonic plague were the same diseases. This article has advanced by research by delineating the ways in which the two diseases are not the same.
