L2L The Marseilles Plague

A Succinct Account of the Plague at Marseilles by François Chicoyneau

The Plague at Marseilles Consider’d by Richard Bradley

The Black Plague hit Marseilles again in 1721, the last major outbreak of the disease in Western Europe. How did the Phocean City handle it? How did city and national authorities as well as medical personnel respond? Epidemiology was in its infancy, and the source of the disease was unknown. Leigh Rich and P. T. Bridgeport discuss two tracts from the time and their relevance to dealing with disease outbreaks today.
