  Abstract:   Towards a history of Romanian dreams: research problems, sources and typology. This study suggests the establishment of a historical oneirology, a transdisciplinary field of research, dedicated to tackling the history of dreams. It succinctly presents the specific manner in which dreaming is studied by psycho-logists, literary historians and specialists in the history of religions, after which it discusses the motives due to which historians have more seldom addressed this subject. The study also propounds a typology of dreams, for research purposes, depending upon their nature and the specifics of the historical sources they men-tion. According to this typology, the oneiric manifestations can be classified into: real dreams (1), fictional dreams (2), reveries and dreams occurring during the waking state (3), interpreted dreams (4), visions, hallucinations and induced dreams (5).

Keywords: dreams in history, dreams in literature, typology of dreams, dream interpretation, historical oneirology
