Maia MartinHistory 131.13Dr. MarkusApril 7, 2017Annotated Bibliography for research on Black Death in Europe (1347 – 1352 CE)Cohn, Samuel K., Jr. "The Black Death: End of a Paradigm."The American HistoricalReview107, no. 3 (June 2002), 703-738Cohn’s article identifies the major difference between the Black Death and the bubonicplague. He says that although many of the symptoms were the same between the twodiseases, they were not the same thing; the bubonic plague was spread through the fleasof 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 isreliable because it is commonly mistaken that the Black Death is just another name forthe bubonic plague, and Cohn goes into detail about how they are different bycomparing their symptoms, treatments, and death rates. Before reading this article, Ithought that the Black Death and the bubonic plague were the same diseases. Thisarticle has advanced by research by delineating the ways in which the two diseases arenot the same.
