The medieval book was a codex written on vellum or parchment, although by the 15th century paper manuscripts were normal. Many medieval manuscripts attained a high perfection of colour and form and are renowned for their beauty.

Lay princes as well as churchmen promoted learning and were among the patrons of humanism, although the practicing humanists themselves were for the most part ecclesiastics.

In the dream that follows, he awakes in a room in which the ‘story of Troye’ is ‘ywrought’ in the windows and the walls are ‘peynted’ with the ‘text and glose’ of the ‘Romaunce of the Rose’, a popular medieval poem (ll.

As is known, Latin continued to be used in England all through the OE and ME periods in religious rituals, in legal documents and in texts of scientific and philosophical character. After the Norman Conquest it was partially replaced by official Anglo-Norman but still its main spheres remained the Church, the law courts and academic activities.

This book explores the fascinating topic of dreams in Spanish medieval literature. It focuses on three interrelated aspects: the prevalent theories developed by different schools of thought from Antiquity to late Middle Ages, the Spanish treatises, and the legal and catechist documents regarding dreams as presented by influential authors such as Isidore of Seville, Ramon Llull, Fray Lope de Barrientos, Arnald of Villanova, and Pedro Ciruelo, and the analysis of various literary dream accounts, including the Cantar de mio Cid, Razon de amor, Libro de Alexandre, Poema de Fernan Gonzalez, Vida de Santa Oria, Vision de Alfonso X, and Romance de Dona Alda, according to these oneiric classifications and traditions. The study demonstrates that medieval Spanish literature follows the mainstream intellectual views on dreams, and the poetic predilection towards revelatory dreams is a result of their dominant position and constant resurfacing throughout the centuries.
