The dreams of Perpetua: An historical application of the continuity hypothesis
AbstractThe continuity hypothesis maintains that a strong link exists between the dreams and waking life of the individual.Often, the contents of our dreams are made up of events and people that are a familiar part of our waking consciousness. Although we know that a certain amont of continuity exists between the dreams and waking experiences of individuals living in the present,to what extent doesa similar type of continuity apply to individuals living in the past? This article attempts to explore this question by studying the dream-visions recorded by one individual of the past,namely, Perpetua.
