Early communities, like those represented in Homer's The Iliad and Sophocles's Oedipus the King, sought a specific cause for the outbreak of widespread sickness. They most often located it in a specific moral lapse that the gods were intent on punishing. The biblical Book of Job, conversely, rejects this theory of moral causation and asserts that humans can never expect to understand fully why bad things happen to good and, even, morally indifferent people.
