    Re: THE PLAGUE OF JUSTINIAN - AD 541-542

    I just read about a 12-year period in plague-waves
    between 540 and 770, during which the waves became
    less severe and more localized.
    And then there were almost no plagues in Europe until 1347.

    That reminded me to the sun-spots and the hypothetical
    11-year pandemic cycle which they assumed in 1976
    when there was swine flu scare.

    Is there a paper about that 12-year cycle ?
    How can it be explained ? Immunity ?
    I'm interested in expert panflu damage estimates

      "Did Justinian Create the First Pandemic?"

      Hardly.
      What's about the various mileniums bugs of ancient Egipt/China/Mesopot./....

      Maybe if the Alexandrian biblio. wasn't burned we knowed more backwards.

        Paul adds that the plague only affected the Romans and those in Italy up to
        its northern borders: as was seen before, the germanic tribes to the north
        do not seem to have been immediately affected by an outbreak of the plague.
