historian as a record and description of the plague. 4. Do you think people in 1348 trusted and believed these authors? People had no idea as to what was going on and this article was written by the faculty of the Paris Medical School. (Definitely seen as a trusted source.) Yes, because it seems like a historical record/account. Maybe not because it is written by a historian and not a medical expert. 5. Where did the plague originate? “Vapor” or gas that was found in some great sea in India. “A land of Darkness” and then it appears in China. 6. What or who caused the plague?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
