Black Death rap song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVSHieg9Jac
it's during the middle ages
during the 1300's (1347)
People started to get sick
but no one knew what caused it
Said to have started in China
and to have spread to Europe
Due to Fleas on Rats
that got on to Trade Ships
These ships set sail from the Middle East
Spread the disease to European port cities. The disease
spread fast it was very quick
it was contagious, so a sneeze or cough could make you
Medieval people didn't know germs cause disease
that the plague was being spread by the rats and the fleas
They believed it was caused by a higher power
as a punishment from god because of Religious Doubters
So they turned to the church hoping they could be saved
the prayed and repented but nothing seemed to change
People got sick and people died
people lost faith, church power declined
Ring around a Rosie,
with your pocket full of posies
if you have the following symptoms
then you might not want to get cozy
do you have buboes under you armpit
or a fever, making you vomit
by day 3 did you notice that
your skin is covered in dark blotches
by day 4 it attacks the Nervous System
causing seizures and pain for the victim
by Day 5 if you're still alive
and the buboes burst
then you might survive
but most of the time
the people die
cause they had no cure, and that is why
Where do they think it started?
What might have caused it?
How did it spread?
Why didn’t people know about germs?
What happened to the church after the plague?
Write the words to the song here:
Ring around________________________
What did this mean?
Pocket full of _______________________
What did this mean?
Ashes Ashes _______________________
The words probably weren’t ashes but a sound to
represent a sneeze- like Atchoo. What does that mean?
We all _________________________________
What did this mean?
at least 1/3 of Europeans lost their life
The Feudal system collapsed When population decline
With fewer workers, supply was low, demand was high
So the rich paid the poor for the goods they wanted to
Now the poor got paid, quality life increased
creating a middle class in the social hierarchy
As time went on the number of deaths decreased
and the legacy of the black death live on in history
What was the feudal system?
Why did the plague make it end?
Why did the number of people dying decrease?

If you havin’ Church problems then
don’t blame God, son I got ninety-five
theses but the Pope ain’t one.
Listen up, all my people, it’s a story
for the telling ‘bout the sin and
injustice and corruption I been
smelling: I met that homie Tetzel,
then I started rebelling Once I seen
the fat Indulgences that he been
selling. Now the Catholics of the
world straight up disgracin’ me Just
because I waved my finger at the
My people got riled up over this
Reformation That’s when Leo
threatened me with
Excommunication. I warned y’all that
Rome best agree to the terms. If not,
then you can eat my Diet of Worms!
You think you done something
spectacular? I wrote the whole Bible
in the vernacular!
A heretic! [What?] Someone throw
me a bone. You forgot salvation
comes through faith alone.
I’m on a mission from God. You think
I do this for fun? I got ninety-five
theses but the Pope ain’t one. Save
One Five One Seven that’s when it
first went down. Then the real test
was when it started spreading
around. Sixty days to recant what I
said? Father, please! You’ve had,
what? Goin’ on fifteen centuries?
Oh snap, he’s messin’ with the holy
communion. But I ain’t never dissed
your precious hypostatic union!One
place at one time. Well, thank you
Zwingli. Yeah, way to disregard that
whole I’m God thingy! Getting all up
in my rosary you little punk. Your
momma shoulda told you not to
mess with no monk.

Final Notes from Class discussion
What you bumpin’ me for? Suddenly
you sore. Keep that up, you’ll have
yourself another Peasant War. You
blame common folk for the smack
they talkin’ You ain’t even taught
them proper Christian doctrine.
With my hat, my Bible, and my sexy
little nun, I got ninety-five theses but
the Pope ain’t one. Save me!
When I wrote the ninety-five, haters
straight up assailed ‘em. Now they
only care whether or not I nailed ‘em
or mailed ‘em. They got
psychoanalytic. ……….
But you forgot about me and my
religious demonstration? Like you
can just create your own
denomination? We don’t like this
part, so well just add a little twist.
Now we Anglican, Amish, and even
Calvinist. I gave you the power, you
gone and abused it. I gave you God’s
truth, you just confused it. Don’t you
never underestimate the stuff that I
done I got 95 theses but the Pope
ain’t one. Save me!
