    The 14th century eruption of the Black Death had a drastic effect on Europe's population, irrevocably changing the social structure. It was a serious blow to the Roman Catholic Church, and resulted in widespread persecution of minorities such as Jews, foreigners, beggars, and lepers. The uncertainty of daily survival created a general mood of morbidity, influencing people to "live for the moment", as illustrated by Giovanni Boccaccio in The Decameron (1353).

    In other words i guess you could say it made the artwork more dark

    The lesson is about famine and war - I'm thinking maybe that being sick gave people extra time to produce art and this caused the art era to flourish
