What can you learn from Sources A and B about changes in understanding about causes of disease from the Middle Ages till 1750?
From both sources, I learn about the understanding of the cause of disease from the Middle Ages till 1750. There was a change because the priests were starting to doubt that God caused disease whereas in the Middle Ages where they had a very strong belief about this. I can infer this from Source A because it says "obliged to pray at night and day to God to deliver them from pain." I can infer from this God was thought to control pain and therefore would be the best way of preventing yourself from getting an illness. I can also infer about the change because Source B shows a priest smuggling individual research to other priests. I can infer from this that people were doubting the belief that God caused disease but it is still strongly believed because the priest is hiding the research. This is a change because people were starting to inquire more about the actual cause of disease and that people are conducting their own research which contradicts what is thought to cause disease.
