How the Black Death worked: Black Death, an epidemic of bubonic plague that appeared in Europe in the 1300's. The origin of the name is uncertain; it may come from a mis-translation of the Latin atra mors ("terrible death"). The Black Death was the most dreadful plague in the history of Europe. Historians estimate that in three years the plague killed at least one-third of Europe's population. Its severity was due in part to the people's low resistance to disease; most suffered from years of malnutrition.
