The volume Predicting the Past. Worldwide Medieval Dream Interpretation is planned to be published in Brill’s series Reading Medieval Sources and aims to give a high-level survey and analysis of dream-books in the Middles Ages (400-1500 CE), in different parts of the world: Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania, and the Americas, and explore their development, dispersal, and typologies. We also intend to investigate issues such as production, use, and audience according to different disciplinary perspectives (e.g. history, literature, art, and religion).
