The Dream Vision: The Other as the Self


Natanela Elias *
Independent Scholar, Israel

ABSTRACT

The Middle Ages were hardly known for their openness or willingness to accept the other, however, research indicates that things were not quite as they seemed. In this particular presentation, I would like to introduce the possibility of resolving conflict (social, political, religious) via literature, and more specifically, through the use of the popular medieval genre of the dream vision.
