In 1349 it resumed in Paris, spread to Picardy, Flanders, and the Low Countries, and from England to Scotland and Ireland as well as to Norway, where a ghost ship with a cargo of wool and a dead crew drifted offshore until it ran aground near Bergen. From there the plague passed into Sweden, Denmark, Prussia, Iceland, and as far as Greenland. Leaving a strange pocket of immunity in Bohemia and Russia unattacked until 1351, it had passed from most of Europe by the mid-1350s. Although the mortality rate was erratic, ranging from one-fifth in some places to nine-tenths or almost total elimination in others, the overall estimate of modern demographers has settled—for the area extending from India to Iceland—around the same figure expressed in Froissart’s casual words: “A third of the world dies.” His estimate, the common one at the time, was not an inspired guess but a borrowing of St. John’s figure for mortality from the plague in Revelation, the favorite guide to human affairs of the Middle Ages.
