Description

This book explores the fascinating topic of dreams in Spanish medieval literature. It focuses on three interrelated aspects: the prevalent theories developed by different schools of thought from antiquity to late Middle Ages, the Spanish treatises, and the legal and catechist documents regarding dreams as presented by influential authors, as well as the analysis of various literary dream accounts. The major contribution is the methodological tool employed to analyze thirty-three literary dream accounts, offering an alternative approach to the study of dreams.
