Legend of the Four Thieves
While there are probably more than a few versions of this story they all center around one event during the middle ages, the Bubonic Plague. During that time, four thieves went from house to house to rob those who had passed on due to the illness. After the thieves were captured and tried for their acts of robbery, a judge offered leniency in exchange for information on how they were able to be around those that had contracted and died of the plague long often enough to rob them but not be affected by the illness. At this time of the plague striking Europe, as a measure of protection, physicians were seen wearing long black robes, wide brimmed hats, and masks that appeared to have a beak. The masks were said to have contained a combination of herbs, spices, and essential oils that the physicians would breathe in order to keep themselves safe from those that had contracted the illness. Their long black robes were also said to be doused in a similar fragrant mixture.
