The chapters explore the dream in relation to divination, religious visions, sleep, nightmares and sleep disorders.

Dr. Janine Rivière received her PhD in History from the University of Toronto. She currently teaches in the International Foundation Program at New College and has published widely on the cultural history of dreams and nightmares in early modern England
