Plague was around for millennia before epidemics took hold – and the way people lived might be what protected them

I might also cite the treatise of Ripa de Sannazar, who wrote in 1522, among other things, that the plague spread through immoderate sexual intercourse. [170]

Before the outbreak of the Black Death the general dissolution of morality had already reached a very high degree. “From the greatest to the most insignificant,” Boccaccio reports, “bishops, prelates, and temporal lords worshipped voluptuousness in the most disgraceful manner, and abandoned themselves not only to natural but also to unnatural lust without shame or restraint, so that by the influence of harlots, male and female, the most important things could be obtained from them.”  But in middle-class society, up till then, a certain appearance of respectability had been preserved; this too had disappeared after the terror of the Black Death had swept away not only all law courts and police, but had destroyed the last conventions of decency.  “Without heed of what is decent or indecent the people live alone of in company , whatever their inclincation may prompt them. And it is not only the laity who behave thus, but the nuns in the convents also, neglecting their rules, abandon themselves to carnal lust, and deem that by voluptuousness and excess they will prolong their lives.”

As once in Athens, many in Florence were now convinced that for reasons of health it was incumbent to lead as dissolute a life as possible “The most reliable medicine, they maintained, was to drink extensively and to have a good time, to wander about with song and merriment, satisfying, as far as possible, every desire, and to laugh and jeer at what was bound to come.” In Corsica, in 1355, one party introduced the community of women and goods, and represented this to the Corsicans as the advent of the golden age. In Rome, during the plague, brilliant festivals and drunken revels were held. Everyone kept open-house not only for his friends, but particularly for strangers.  In the same way in Paris, balls, banquets, sports, and tournaments formed a continuous sequence. “The French, so to say, danced on the corpses of their relations. It was actually as if they wished to display their joy at the upset in their houses and at the death of their friends.” The bas-reliefs and capitals in the French churches are of extraordinary interest; they represent erotic scenes.  In the cathedral of Alby a fresco even depicts sodomites engaged in sexual intercourse.  That homosexuality was also well known in parts of Germany is proved by the trials of the Beghards and Beguins in the 14th century, particularly by the confessions of the brethren Johannes and Albert of Bruenn which are preserved in a Greifswalkd manuscript.  From these it is evident that the Brethren of the Free Mind did not consider homosexuality as sinful. “And if one brother desires to commit sodomy with a male, he should do so without let or hindrance and without any feeling of sin, as otherwise he would not be a Brother of the Free Mind.”  In a Munich manuscript we read: “And when they go to confession and come together and hepreaches to them, he takes the one who is the most beautiful among them all and does to her according to his will, and they extinguish the light and fall one upon the other, a man upon a man, and a woman upon a woman, as it just comes about.  Everyone must see with his own eyes how his wife or daughter is abused by others, for they assert that no one can commit sin below his girdle. That is their belief.” The other curious doctrines that incest is permissible, even when practised on the altar, that no one has the right to refuse consent, that Christ risen from the dead had intercourse with Magdalena, etc., all indicate that such deterioration and confusion of moral ideas was only caused by the great plagues, particularly by that of 1348.  In England, where immorality had also attained a high degree, the ladies appeared at the great tournaments in male attire with a sword at their sides. During the plague at Milan in 1586 the “Political Chamber Fraternities” were formed; they spent the whole day “with all kinds of games at cards, dice and the like , and also with bestial amusement and over eating and drinking.”  The “Academia d’amore” became celebrated: it was a company of young nobles who in imitation of Deamerone retired to a castle and there spent the days with stories, games, and the pleasures of love. The chroniclers of those days report with evident satisfaction that the plague mocked at the moats and drawbridges of the castle and made a thorough clearance among those “worldly excrescences and sinful worldly felines.”
