Odo, Because they wore masks that don't work? or because they wanted to jail people that didn't follow their superstitions?

Odo, 100 years after, and medicine still uses the "cure" invented during the plague (in 1346). Good luck follwoing it!

Yeah... You're talking about those bird masks right?
Maybe either do your research or stop trying to sway people by trying to make people believe the masks were what medieval doctors used to hold off the plague.
And therefore trying to make it seem masks are a backwards and stupid idea.

In medieval times, doctors believed there was a thing called a "miasma" that smelled foul and caused disease like the plague. Which actually is not that of a stupid leap of the imagination since they probably put a link to foul smelling water (which we now know was likely contaminated with organic garbage and some rotting rats at the bottom) and using that as drinking and washing water.
The masks they used (which looked like bird masks) had the beak part filled with nice smelling herbs and flowers because they believed nice SMELLS warded away that miasma or to keep "bad air" out and nothing else. We however don't believe in some kind of vague "bad air" now do we?

The reason we use masks is completely different, completely logical and completely scientific. You can look up all the reasons and how and why they work everywhere.

Let me know which of the real reasoning you don't agree with and we'll discuss that instead of baseless nonsense like "medieval doctors used some sort of mask so any mask use no matter how is medieval and stupid too !"
