Anthrax has a long association with human history.
The fifth and sixth plagues described in Exodus
may have been anthrax in domesticated animals
followed by cutaneous anthrax in humans. The
disease that Virgil described in his Georgics is clearly
anthrax in domestic and wild animals. And during
the 16th to the 18th centuries in Europe, anthrax
was an economically important agricultural disease.
