Bologna is well known for its powerful university and notariate of the thirteenth century, but the fourteenth-century city is less studied. This work redresses the imbalance in scholarship by examining social and economic life at mid-fourteenth century, particularly during the epidemic of plague, the Black Death of 1348. Arguing against medieval chroniclers' accounts of massive social, political, and religious breakdown, this examination of the immediate experience of the epidemic, based on notarial records--including over a thousand testaments--demonstrates resilience during the crisis.

Throughout the fourteenth century AD/eighth century H, waves of plague swept out of Central Asia and decimated populations from China to Iceland. So devastating was the Black Death across the Old World that some historians have compared its effects to those of a nuclear holocaust. As countries began to recover from the plague during the following century, sharp contrasts arose between the East, where societies slumped into long-term economic and social decline, and the West, where technological and social

In the time between the 14th and 17th centuries, the mainland of Europe suffered numerous disasters, including those of biological origin. One of the most mysterious of those phenomena was dancing mania, also called the dancing plague. It involved groups of people dancing erratically until they collapsed from exhaustion and injuries. People often danced in significant numbers, sometimes including thousands of participants. The well-documented phenomenon doesn't have a clear explanation up to date. The 19th-century German physician Justus Hecker provided
