What I find interesting (aside from the aromatic herbs nonsense) is that some of them wore primitive hazmat suits:
Quote:
Some plague doctors wore a special costume. The garments were invented by Charles de L'Orme in 1630 and were first used in Naples, but later spread to be used throughout Europe.[12] The protective suit consisted of a light, waxed fabric overcoat, a mask with glass eye openings and a beak shaped nose, typically stuffed with herbs, straw, and spices. Plague doctors would also commonly carry a cane to examine and direct patients without the need to make direct contact with them.[13]

Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
