C. Blaming of the Jewish and mass hysteria

D. Great leaps in medicine

1 Answer

  • One of the effects of the bubonic plague on the behavior of medieval Europeans was an increase in discrimination towards Jews blaming them for causing disease and mass hysteria (option C).

    Around the year 1346, one of the most catastrophic events in human history began in Europe, the Black Death pandemic that lasted until the early 18th century (the last time a massive outbreak was recorded).

    This outbreak had its peak between the years 1346 and 1353 in which it caused the death of about 60% of the population of Europe. That is why days hysteria took hold of people, and this triggered a series of behaviors and thoughts such as:

    • Jews are the cause of the pandemic
    • The pandemic is a punishment from God
    • The pandemic is caused by human waste that is thrown into the streets

    In particular, when Jews were blamed for causing the pandemic, they were singled out for poisoning the water and led to lynchings against Jews and discrimination.
