Dreams in Early Modern England provides an in-depth exploration of the variety of ways in which early modern people understood and interpreted dreams, from medical explanations to political, religious or supernatural associations. The chapters explore the dream in relation to divination, religious visions, sleep, nightmares and sleep disorders.
