Abstract:

"In early medieval Europe, dreams and visions were believed to reveal divine information about Christian life and the hereafter. No consensus existed, however, as to whether all Christians, or only a spiritual elite, were entitled to have a relationship of this sort with the supernatural. Drawing on a rich variety of sources - histories, hagiographies, ascetic literature, and records of dreams at saints' shrines - Isabel Moreira provides insight into a society struggling to understand and negotiate its religious visions."--Jacket.
