Resumen

GEOFFROY, Andrés Sáez  y  DIAZ, Joel Parra. From the Antonine Plague to the Cyprian Plague: Scopes and consequences of global plagues in the Roman Empire in the 3rd century AD. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2020, vol.37, n.4, pp.450-455. ISSN 0716-1018.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-10182020000400450.

Between the 2nd and 3rd centuries the Roman Empire suffered two great plagues, the Antonine Plague, of which there is a bibliography, and the lesser known Plague of Cyprian. As an overview, both pandemics resemble the crisis that in 2020 the Coronavirus is generating in many aspects of human life. This article focuses on the impact that the Cyprian plague had in the context of the crisis of the third century, its mortality is estimated between 10-20% of the population in the affected places, finally its effects generated several of the necessary conditions for the transition from the ancient to the medieval world. It is about understanding how the cycle of plagues that went from the 2nd century to the 3rd century changed the appearance of the Roman world and what lessons history gives us 1700 years later.

Palabras clave : Antonine Plague; Cyprian Plague; viral hemorrhagic fever; Roman Empire.
