PhD thesis Title: ‘Cologne and the Black Death.’


Historians have debated the impact of the Black Death in the fourteenth century widely, how people coped with it and how its impact was on restructuring society. However, research into the Black Death in Germany is fragmentary, which is largely caused by the complex structure of the Holy Roman Empire, and the relative sparsity of primary sources. Cologne, as one of the major cities in medieval Germany, has attracted a surprisingly limit amount of attention. My project looks at the immediate impact of plague and how its citizens coped with plague and if there were any long-lasting consequences.
