Dictionary.com defines ethnocentrism this way:
1. Sociology. the belief in the inherent superiority of one's own ethnic group or culture.
2. a tendency to view alien groups or cultures from the perspective of one's own.
Informally defined, ethnocentricity means being so totally oriented to your own ethnicity and culture that you think that's the only right way to be and all the others are inferior or invalid. Maybe you don't even recognize or acknowledge other ethnicities and cultures or know anything about them. Ethnocentricity can make a person reject anything that's not what he or she was brought up with and taught, whether it's beliefs and values or food and dress. It works against understanding, tolerance, and peaceful coexistence.

Many joined abbeys or other cults for the purpose of mortification of their own flesh (to mirror that of Jesus Christ) in order to appease God or make themselves more worthy of Him. They became, quite naturally, much more focused on the deaths surrounding them and their own approaching mortality. Some came to blame foreigners for the plague and this strengthened the ethnocentricity of the British.
