In human history, we can fi nd many examples of predictions of plague epidemics through the prism of popular beliefs, an interpretation of natural cataclysms and a movement of the stars. Of major importance in this regard, were the apocalyptic visions, inspired from the visionary writings of the Apostle John by invoking the mission of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse which symbolized the Parthian Archer, War, Hunger, and Plague / Death. On a symbolic dimension, the Plague comes on a yellow horse, pale green, symbolizes disease and death, and in the Romanian popular beliefs persistent magical practices of removing a plague with a horse’s head. The causes of the outbreak of the plague are explained by the people in the dependence on the historical epochs of the concrete in which they were living, giving priority to the causes of heavenly nature, the plague being perceived as a punishment sent to the people by divinity for the sins committed, disobedience and deviation of the sacred canons.
