Description

The Medieval Dream Dictionary is composed of entries coming from Latin and vernacular Italian versions of the Somniale Danielis – known as The Dreambook of Daniel the Prophet – which range from the ninth century to the first printed editions through 1550. This manual illustrates more than 3200 years of the history of dream interpretation from Ancient Egypt to today’s web pages. The Dictionary, which gathers this material for the first time, provides not only a better understanding of the medieval and Renaissance oneiric imaginary, but will also allow a practical introduction to the study of literary and artistic dream symbolism.
