Omtale Dream Cultures
This volume offers a comparative, cross-cultural history of dreams. The authors examine a wide range of texts concerning dreams, from a variety of religious contexts (from China, India, the Americas, classical Greek and Roman antiquity, early Christianity, and medieval Judaism and Islam). Taken together, these essays consitute an important first step towards a new understanding of the differences and similarities between the ways in which different cultures experience the world of dreams.
