Coping with Plague: Public Health and Epidemics in Renaissance Italy
Each age faces the challenge of a new epidemic, whether it is cholera, tuberculosis, AIDS, SARS, Bird Flu or Ebola. Plague, however, has remained a paradigm against which reactions to other epidemics have been judged.
Focusing mainly on 17th century Tuscany, John Henderson will argue that it is time to re-assess early modern Italian policies dealing with plague within a wider context of measures adopted by other European cities and states.
