Chapter Summary

Daniel the visionary and interpreter of dreams is the point of entry into the topic of Dreams and Visions. Past and present, the memory of settled, peaceful times, of the beautiful buildings of a well-maintained, commodious city contrasted with loss, decay, turbulence, and the downfall of nations and empires, in one case Rome, in another case, the ancient kingdoms of Israel and Judah, as recorded in the Lamentations of the prophet Jeremiah, unite the contributions of archeologist and classicist, Birgitta Lindros Wohl and musicologist, Nancy van Deusen. Vision of the beholder; a perception of qualities as the basis and foundation for attitude, possible action, and certainly, is the topic that of art historian, Joanna Woods-Marsden and her perceptive analysis of an unexpected topic, the perception of dwarfs as delineated by, and given visual representation; and Robert W. Hanning's treatment of a "vision of Indians" during the nineteenth century.
