How do you explain a plague that decimated Europe, the center of Christendom? Those who suffered and survived the Black Death wrestled with this question. Using contemporary accounts from the period, create a narrative of the Black Death. The assignment should include a variety of voices and be written in a journal-like style, as someone recording events as they unfold.
