The Black Death Effects
Farming land was given over to pasturing, which was much less labour-intensive. This change in farming led to a boost in the cloth and woollen industry. Peasants moved from the country to the towns. The Black Death was therefore also responsible for the decline of the Feudal system. People became disillusioned with the church and its power and influence went into decline. This resulted in the English reformation. The Black Death had huge effects on Europe, from the people to goods to the economy. Considering nearly over 35 million people died over the major outbreak of the Black Death. The main focuses after the Black Death was religion and goods such as farming. Not to mention all the effects that the Black Death had on all people in the Middle Ages. The Black Death was the murderer of the Middle Ages.
