Primary Sources
A Manual of the Inquisitor (p. 230-232)
1 The writer feels that the Waldenses are heretical and that they reject and scorn Roman Catholic
ways when the inquisitor is doing the exact same thing with the addition of killing them.
2 The Waldenses believe that they have the power to observe confessions and give penance. In
Roman Catholic religion only priests or clerics are allowed to do so.
3 The writer alleges that these people think that any holy man can be a priest because their
religion establishes that all in the eyes of God are equal and that priests are not higher in order.
This is ironic because not all of the priests in the Roman Catholic Church are holy for the fact
that they order to prosecute the Waldenses.
B The Decameron: The Plague in Florence (p. 234-232)
1 In reaction to the plague, some would party and drink to forget of the problems.
2 Many fled from the plague to the country side not knowing if the plague will follow them but
they still went thinking they had a chance.
3 Many would avoid the infected and isolate themselves and went as far as to abandon family and
friends.
C The Goodman of Paris: Instructions on Being a Good Wife (p. 239-241)
1 According to this article, the woman must always follow the husband and do whatever he says
and gain Gods love and do whatever he says. Which made it seem like your husband is also
God.
2 A woman must always be a woman, meaning do all the housework, leave heavy lifting to the
men, and cook.
3 A woman also needs to be able to keep good company and treat them with good humor and
discretion.

ruled their own little area, church included.
2 France and Englands kings were particularly more powerful than the rest and the war between
them marked the end of peace.
3 This has started feudalism. After the end of the war English and the French developed.
B The Black Death: A Socioeconomic Perspective (p. 247-249)
1 After the plague blew over, the lack of products increased the prices and so did the price of
labor.
2 Mercenaries and other opportunists took advantage of the chaos that followed after the plague
and immigration to large cities happened. The laws were more lax and acquiring a citizenship
became easier.
3 Irregular inheritance created a new rich class. Due to the collapse of the older rich families,
others became rich which created great contention among the citizens.
C A Psychological Perspective of the Black Death (p. 249-250)
1 Criminal activity went up after the plague hit because of despair and hopelessness. They
wanted to experience lifes pleasures before they died.
2 Artists and poets preoccupation was death. They drew it and depicted it with morbid
fascination in their work.
3 The response to Black Death was overall guilt and fear of Gods punishment and what they did
to garner it. But they also felt that the church wasnt effective and lost faith.
