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.

Review quote

Fifteen essays by an impressive international team of specialists in literature, anthropology and history of religion... Dream Cultures strengthens the view that dreams are not necessarily the domain of psychology. * Charles Stewart, TLS 11/08/2000 * Dream Cultures offers titbits from various cultures and serves as a perfect appetizer to read more about dreams in antiquity * Veit Rosenberger, The Classical Review, Vol.51, No.1, 2001 *
