Since the priests refused to give last rites to dying parishioners, other people started their own churches. It started the Religious Fanatic movement where people flogged themselves pretending to walk as Christ did hoping to stop the plague. Jews of course got blamed again for non belief of Christ. By the way, this year is the 666th anniversary of the last time half the earth with destroyed by the plague. It's the 666th anniversary of the beginning of the fall of the catholic church. It's the 666th anniversary since the first time germ warfare was used. The Mongolians would catapult their dead plague victims into their enemy so they would get it. The way the plague died out was people went into their own homes and kept to themselves. That stopped the spread. Much like they did during the Passover and Isaiah and Jesus said we will do when we see the abomination. Hope this helped a bit.
Jews weren't just blamed they were killed and tortured in the streets, the poles, intelligent enough to realized Jews were dying at the same rate as others, opened their borders to Jews and protected them.the Germans actually thought the Jews were poisoning the water.after the plague there was such a shortage of people that land became available to the peasants. they not only had plenty of food, they had extra to sell, this really helped the economy to explode.
