Authors often underline how plague’s unique terribility derives from its more direct correlation with divine wrath: “the plague is more immediately from God buy 50 mg minocycline overnight delivery, than any other Sicknesse or Disease for it is the immediate stroke of God” (Brooks 1666: A3v) minocycline 50mg discount. All texts invariably construct the discourse of human culpability and active agency in connection with God’s pestilential punishment by for example reiterating references to human ‘wilful consenting’ to 4 I have not modernized the spelling in my quotations from early texts or cor- rected any printing mistakes. The first is to further prayer and repentance: writings which elaborate on wilful sinning aim to stimulate energetic personal initiatives towards reformation. Indeed, great care is always taken to associate descriptions of plague as God’s scourge with accents on its quality as a just and deserved retribution, a pesti- lential visitation sent by a just God to his creatures who have ‘justly deserved’ it (Grindal 1563: 484). A text of exceptional persuasive cha- racter and capillary dissemination, the collection of plague prayers published in 1563 by the Bishop of London Edmund Grindal for use in each English church and household, includes this invocation: “turn away from us this his plague and punishment, most justly poured upon us for our sins and unthankfulness” (1563: 78). The discourse of divine clemency and fairness in association with open or implied references to human culpability is furthered by stress on divine patience: God has repeatedly forgiven sinners and has urged repentance; only “at length” has he begun “to stretch forth his v punishing hande” (Pullein 1608: D2 ). Other writings propose the same notion of a merciful God by presenting plague as the product of divine love: “God most mercifully chastiseth his Children for their sinnes […] that they might […] flee vnto him for help” (I. Semantic fields in the discourse of plague Within the discourse of plague as punishment, two semantic fields ‒ one concerning communication, the other law ‒ are worth noting. As regards the first, the disease is frequently presented as God’s means of communication with his disobedient creatures, as a sort of “messen- Ideological Uses of Medical Discourses in Early Modern English 53 ger” (Hooper 1553: A2). An evocative treatment of this function of pestilence is found in the first-hand account of the great London epi- demic of 1665 by the nonconforming preacher Thomas Vincent. In a passage characterized by a didactic and pedantic tone, the London minister points out that “God being a Spirit, hath no Mouth nor Tongue properly as men have, […] therefore his way of speaking is not like ours”; indeed, he speaks “by terrible things” and his voice is “loud and full of terrour”. As if reading a list of charges in court, authors compile long and detailed catalogues of sins which have occasioned an “awakening judgment” (Vincent 1667: 21), a “fearfull iudgement of the Lord” (Pullein 1608: E) in the form of a pestilential 5 visitation. Metaphors used to describe plague often include terms from the judicial area: plague is an “extra ordinary magistrate to v reforme and punish […] synne” (Hooper 1553: B3 ) and a “Nimble v executioner of the Diuine Iustice” (Dekker 1630: A4 ). While all texts, in connection with characterizations of plague as punishment, refer to some extent to divine wrath, some writings inflect this theme and depict the terrible image of a pitiless, blood- thirsty God at war with humanity. As with the discourse of human cul- pability discussed above, emphases on God’s fearfulness are generally more numerous and forceful in texts designed, by rousing terror, to convince people of the extreme virulence of the present epidemic requiring an extraordinary effort in terms of universal prayer and fasting, or in writings, especially by nonconformist ministers, which lay stress exclusively or predominantly on the supernatural origin of plague. I suggest that frequent and often particularly vehement refer- ences to God’s cruelty and fearfulness may also function as more or 5 Interesting lists are found in Vincent (1667: 51) and Church of England (1603: C3v). Drawing inspiration from and at the same time adding to a repertoire of scriptural images, numerous plague writings lay stress on God’s bellicose attitude. Hence, the epidemiolo- gical weaponry of the pestilential bacillus ─ the intensity of pain, the horror of signs, the rapid demise of victims ─ is transfigured in depic- tions of God’s weapons: sharp arrows, for a precise, mortal wound, a sword, a rod. The semantic field of military operations is evoked by frequent occurrences of expressions within the battle domain: thus God is cast as a “furious enemy” (Vincent 1667: 176) who negotiates “the retrait from the battell” (Pullein 1608: E) with his afflicted creatures. The terrifying sounds of the battlefield echo in plague writings which often include mentions of the “drum of God’s wrath” and the “Trumpet vnto the Lord’s battels” (Pullein 1608: E). This image of a bellicose God is a commonplace of all texts, including those by lay authors, like Kellwaye, a “Gentleman” writing for “the loue and benefit of his fellow countrymen”, who warns that God “hath determined to strike vs at the quicke” (1593: A3). Plague writings seem to document a general attempt to make sense of the enormity of the calamity in recognizable and acceptable terms as a no quarter war declared by God who typically destroys, smites, strikes, slaughters, slays and kills. He is an invincible enemy whose records on the battlefield include the annihilation of thousands in just three days with a pestilential visitation in response to David’s trespasses as Bishop Grindal reminds the English people (1563: 479). Military vocabulary and imagery extend to God’s ministers: since their vehement urgings to repent and hence parry the divine blow have fallen on deaf ears, they have joined the exterminating army: “now must you heare vs strike vp the drum of God’s wrath, and sound out the Trumpet vnto the Lords battels” (Pullein 1608: E). In addition to these volunteer drummers and trumpeters, God’s army in- Ideological Uses of Medical Discourses in Early Modern English 55 cludes redoubtable fighters like “venimous Aspes, and bloodie Lyons, Sathan and his wicked spirites” (Holland 1603: 53). The discourse of God’s enmity and bellicosity had universal currency, conveyed as it was not just through repeated elaborations in sermons and miscellaneous texts on Scriptural warnings that “the ar- rowes of the Lord are drunke with blood and his sword doth not cease deuoring of mans flesh” (Pullein 1608: E), but also in the iconogra- phical apparatus of widely circulated broadsheets and bills of morta- lity which was characterized by a version of the medieval danse macabre: God’s angel brandishes a sword and hovers from a pesti- lential cloud over cities and villages while a triumphant Death with his usual attributes, the hourglass and dart, is surrounded by coffins and corpses. As Sheils points out: “explanations of disease in terms of God’s will to punish and in terms of natural pheno- mena could be reconciled by theories of primary and secondary causa- tion” (1982: 89). Unsurprisingly, the balance between supernatural and natural explanations fluctuates in a remarkable way according to the characters and purposes of texts. Hence surgeon William Boras- ton, after a prefatory mention of sin as plague’s primary cause, first enlarges on the secondary means used by God to infect villages and cities, “astrall Impression”, “the coniunction of Saturne and Mars”, “Eclipses”, then alerts readers on the role of “the breath, heat, sweat, smell, habitation, and garments from the sicke” in contagion (1630: 1- 3). Bishop Hooper, on the other hand, while allowing for causes 56 Paola Baseotto v “naturall and consonaunte to reason” (1553: A3 ) like corrupt air which generates pestilential vapours from water or unbalance of the four humours, lays great stress on the supernatural origin of plague when he admonishes that “yuell humors” cannot be “engendered of any meates, were not the man that useth them corrupte and first infected with sinne; […] and soo altereth not by chaunce, nor by the influence of starres, the holesomnes of the ayer intoo pestylente and contagyouse infectyon” but because of “synne and contempte of v gooddes holye woorde” (1553: B3, B3 ). Some writings transcend the discourse of primary and seconda- ry causes by postulating the existence of two kinds of plague, one ut- terly supernatural, the other entirely natural. The first proceeds direct- ly from God’s blow and therefore is not infectious, the other is spread by natural means like corrupt air and contact with victims. Hence for in- stance Bradwell subtly distinguishes a “simple” kind of plague de- riving from the “immediate stroke of Gods punishing Angell” and en- tailing no “distemper of Blood, putrifaction of Humors, or influence of Starres” and a “putrid” kind (1636: 2). In their endorsements of this thesis some influential churchmen went as far as to argue that “wilfull sinners” catch the supernatural kind of plague, an “incurable […] pestilence” against which no medicine is effective (Hooper 1553: C1). Because the idea of a wholly supernatural type of the disease implied inefficacy of natural remedies, a compromise was found to allow for both supernatural and natural salves: the two kinds of plague, often occurring at the same time and in the same geographical area, were generally declared to be hardly distinguishable one from the other. While official writings like plague orders by the Privy Council and specific forms of prayers by Church of England authorities ac- commodate both natural and supernatural explanations allowing for natural and supernatural remedies ─ medicaments and quarantine, prayers and fasts respectively ─ other texts, especially by non- conforming preachers, are markedly biased in favour of the super- natural element and further a providential and predestinarian view of plague. This view encouraged fatalistic attitudes and presented medi- Ideological Uses of Medical Discourses in Early Modern English 57 cal and governmental measures as ineffective and ungodly: “they see many preserued in the midst of the plague, who haue vsed no phisicall meanes. Typical of such writings are general pronouncements which depict epidemics as a matter-of-fact divine initiative requiring godly submission, rather than resistance: “that so many thousands dies [sic] […] of pestilence, it is fore-ordained in heaven. The randomness of the disease, which wiped out whole households and spared their neighbours, devastated some geographical areas and was absent or hardly present in others, is also frequently re- ferred to as proof of its providential nature. Worth careful note are interpretations and descriptions of the physiological marks of plague in spiritual terms aimed at propagating the notion of the utterly supernatural quality of the disease requiring spiritual salves only. Recalling the etymology of plague from Latin plaga, a stroke or blow, and offering a literal reading of Scriptural metaphors, some passages describe buboes as marks left by God’s sword or arrows, as the visible tokens of sin which is the source of 6 infection. Clapham reports that many “so smitten, haue felt and heard the noyse of a blow and some of them haue upon such a blow found the plain print of a blew hand left behind upon the flesh”. His account closes with a telling cause-and-effect statement: “the Angels stroke so is the Cause, the plague-sores and marks arising and appearing are the v effect” (1603: B ). Drawing on the dominant metaphor used in connection with plague, that of war, he typifies it as a victorious “Captaine” or “Tyraunt” who “displayes his Ensignes on the Wals of our bodies” (1608: E4). Pullein goes on to describe with scientific accuracy the swift transformation of the buboes, the captain’s ensigns, from their 6 “Our word plague is derived from the Latin word plaga, which originally meant a blow or a stroke, but which acquired in late Latin the additional meaning of pestilence, because a pestilence – irrespective of its nature – was regarded by the pagan Romans as a blow from the gods and by the Christiani- zed Romans as a stroke expressive of the divine wrath” (Shrewsbury 1970: 1). Other expressive spiritual readings of the epide- miological realities of plague include transcriptions of public orders regarding burial of victims at night with “no neighbours nor friends […] to accompany the Coarse” (Royal College of Physicians 1636: H2) in order to prevent the spread of contagion, as retribution for sin. Capitalizing on well-established fears of anomalous and dishonour- able burial, some authors in their exhortations to repentance invite people to visualize their own funeral: “Which of your neighbors will accompany your corpes to the graue?
