Abstract/Description: The purpose of this study is to conduct a comparative analysis of the social and political factors of the bubonic plague and malaria epidemics in Italy. The goal is to understand the ways in which bacterial and parasitic microbial diseases affect the development of medical practices and social structures, and how, reciprocally, social and political structures interact with the spread and treatment of each disease. Social dynamics of a population are often overlooked or criticized as being unreliable in the research of infectious diseases, however they have proved to be monumental in understanding and treating a disease. Socio-economic, political and cultural factors are significant constituents in the research of disease related epidemics. Infectious diseases continue to inhibit the economic edifices and the social anatomy of developing countries, and remain a key underlying problem in economic development. Making these trans-disciplinary links by bridging the gap between social and natural sciences and studying the social and biological parallels of past diseases may help in understanding similar relationships in the 21st century.
