Black Death

How do historians believe the plague reached Europe?

A Tatar troop had been besieging a city at the Black Sea, when they withdrew and had the plague among them, they catapulted heads of plague dead corpses, and then the plague spread in the Christian world from there.

If the Tatars had been busy with Swedes and Russians trying to rebel against them with Swedish support, they might have stayed clear of the places where they got the plague.

St. Bridget had told the Swedish king to start a crusade against the Pagans in Novgorod, meaning the Tatars, he did not listen.

For some reason, there is no mention "Answer requested by Diana Crisan" under the answer, but she requested it./HGL
