What disease was plague? : on the controversy over the microbiological identity of plague epidemics of the past by Ole Jørgen Benedictow( )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent decades, alternatives to the established bubonic-plague theory have been presented as to the microbiologcal identity and mechanism(s) of spread of historical plague epidemics. In this monograph, the six important alternative theories are intensively discussed in the light of the historical sources, the central primary studies and standard works on bubonic plague and the alternative microbiological agents, insofar as they are testable. These seven theories are incompatible and at least six of them must be untenable. In the author's opinion, the arguments against the bubonic-plague theory and for all alternative theories are untenable. This monograph therefore also has been written also as a standard work on bubonic plague, giving a broad and in-depth presentation of the medical, epidemiological and historical evidence and the methodological tenets for identification of historical diseases by comparison with modern medical knowledge
The Black Death, 1346-1353 : the complete history by Ole Jørgen Benedictow( Book )

28 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The many local studies on the Black Death published in a variety of languages and scholarly papers have for the first time been systematically collected and thoroughly analysed. The medical and epidemiological characteristics of the disease, its geographical origin, its spread across Asia Minor, the Middle East, North Africa and Europe, and the mortality in the countries and regions for which there are satisfactory studies, are clearly presented and thoroughly discussed. The pattern, pace and seasonality of spread revealed through close scrutiny of these studies exactly reflect current medical work and standard studies on the epidemiology of bubonic plague." "Benedictow's findings relating to the mortality caused by the Black Death are based on the study and synthesis of all available demographic studies. Published over the past forty years, most of them in widely dispersed local journals and local histories, this cumulative evidence, astounding in its implications, has gone largely unnoticed. This book makes it indisputably clear that the true mortality rate was far higher than has been previously thought."--Jacket

Svartedauen og senere pestepidemier i Norge : pestepidemiens historie i Norge 1348-1654 by Ole Jørgen Benedictow( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in Norwegian and Norwegian and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moderne forskning viser at dødeligheten under svartedauen i Norge var over 50 %. Denne boken setter for første gang pesttiden i Norge i fokus, fra svartedauen i 1348?1349 til den siste pestbølgen i 1654. Bakgrunnen og virkningene av disse epidemiene settes inn i de store samfunnsmessige sammenhengene som skaper historie og former menneskenes liv. I norsk historie utgjør svartedauen og etterfølgende pestepidemier hovedgrunnen til Norges politiske nedgang i senmiddelalderen og undergang som selvstendig stat i 1536. Benedictow gjør nøye rede for de nye impulser til mer rasjonelle forståelsesmåter og hensiktsmessig holdninger til bekjempelse av pestepidemiene som kom med overgangen fra middelalder til tidlig nytid. Forfatter og professor Ole Jørgen Benedictow, til daglig ansatt ved historisk institutt, Universitetet i Oslo. Han har tidligere skrevet lærebøker og populærvitenskapelige bøker innen historie og dessuten to avhandlinger om pestens historie.Hf., 2002
