> "Black Death"- meines Erachtens handelt es sich auch hierbei um die Beulenpest.
It's not quite as clear cut as you might think :-)
The Observer, Saturday 29 March 2014:
"Black death skeletons reveal pitiful life of 14th-century Londoners
DNA from emaciated London Black Death skeletons matches modern plague bacteria and supports airborne theory of spread
The 25 skeletons unearthed in the Clerkenwell area of London a year ago may hold the key to the truth about the nature of the Black Death that ravaged Britain and Europe in the mid-14th century.
A Channel 4 documentary on Sunday will claim that analysis of the bodies and of wills registered in London at the time has cast doubt on "facts" that every schoolchild has learned for decades: that the epidemic was caused by a highly contagious strain spread by the fleas on rats.
Evidence taken from the human remains found in Charterhouse Square, to the north of the City of London, during excavations carried out as part of the construction of the Crossrail train line, may support a theory held by some scientists that only an airborne infection could have spread so fast and killed so quickly."http://www.theguardian.com/science/2014/mar/2...
That's probably what sparked the misspelt new entry suggestion for pneumonic plague:Siehe auch: Pneunomic Plague - Lungenpest
and I had a quick look at the existing entry for bubonic plague.
The general entries for plague/Pest and Black Death [hist.]/Pest are OK but medically speaking there is a need for distinction between the different clinical presentations of disease caused by Yersinia pestis
