Dreams and Divination from Byzantium to Baghdad, 400-1000 CE

Bronwen Neil

Oxford Studies in the Abrahamic Religions

  • Increases understanding of the continuities across the major religious traditions of Late Antiquity by comparing pagan, early Christian, Byzantine, Talmudic, and Islamic sources up to 1000 CE, with a focus on the prophetic role of women
  • Traverses traditionally separate disciplines—Classical studies, biblical studies, Late Antiquity, Byzantine studies, and gender studies
  • Cites examples from the major sources in translation and tackles complex philosophical and theological differences in an accessible style
