Zombie Apocalypse in Europe in 1495



Published
The southern city-state of Naples, in the late 15th century, acted as another kind of petri dish. In 1495, Naples came down with a case of super syphilis—an early iteration of the disease that left the infected with ghastly lesions down to the bone, yet still living, for a time. The result: shuffling, contagious victims wandering the streets in various states of decay, aka Renaissance Zombies.
