    Th is book provides an integrated overview of the multiple roles that dreams have played through history in the world’s religious traditions. It explores the lively interaction between dreaming and religion, tracing the influences in both directions how individual dreams have shaped religious traditions and how religious traditions have fed back into personal dream experience.

That happens, at any rate, to many people when they read a book on dreams, and it is one small indication of the continuous interaction of waking and dreaming experience. Dreams have often been compared to a mirror that reflects the true character of the dreamer. What happens when the individual face in the mirror sees itself reflected in the collective dream mirror of all humanity...!
