Subject: Black Death Compendium 1348
>Hello Fixed Stars,
>Found the original Latin text (and translation to French) of the "Compendium
de epidemia compilatum per Collegium Facultatis Medicorum Parisiis" 1348, in
this book "Etude historique et critique sur la peste", by H. Emile Rébouis
where the Mars, Jupiter, Saturn conjunction is mentioned as one of the
possible causes of the Black Death :
Page 77 :
and pages 79 and 81
>It also mentions "the conjunction of Mars and the North Node of the Moon in
Leo the 6th October 1347 till the end of May of the present year " (1348) as
one of the causes.
Many other interesting ancient texts (and images) on pestilence here :
All the best,
Thank you, Joanna! It's great!
I wish it were in English - my French is extremely limited - but it's
great to have it!
