Plague is a term used to describe an epidemic contagious disease, particularly in Biblical and medieval times. The Great Plagues of Egypt included afflictions other than disease; other notable plagues include the Black Death, which killed one-third of the population of Europe in the 1340s, and the Great Plague of London of 1665.
