Whatever his country, whatever his time, man had to deal with complex situations, events over which he had no control. This is the case with epidemics. Since ancient times, there is a dreaded scourge among all: the plague. In Provence, the 18th century begins with three very rough decades. 1709 is a year of great famine to the point that the poorest eat roots; 1729 is experiencing a harsh winter that freezes wine in barrels and kills olive trees... and in the meantime will you tell me? The scourge so feared; the one whose 300 years are being “celebrated” today: 1720, the plague of Marseilles.
