“The pandemic began in the East, sweeping through cities and towns, disrupting daily life and sowing fear and uncertainty throughout much of the known world.”
Although this sounds like an apt description of today’s Covid-19 pandemic, it was actually referring to the Antonine Plague, possibly smallpox or measles, which took place in the second century.

Throughout human history, epidemics and pandemics have occurred time and again. Fear and the manners in which people respond are similar from one event to the next. History does have a way of repeating itself, simply because these occurrences have the same common denominator — humans. This talk will focus on the epidemics of the 20th and 21st centuries. Open to the public, all those who attend must wear a mask, social distance and adhere to other Covid-prevention protocols.
