Abstract

In the Christian-biblical tradition there are numerous historical-artistic sources describing the moment of sleep, of dreamlike or spiritual nocturnal visions and of simply lying in bed. From the forms of realistic representation of beds, however, from those of rest to those due to physical infirmity, it moves on to the symbolic and allegorical ones in which the representation of sleeping or resting becomes an exemplification of other human attitudes, up to the mystical one of listening and the manifestation of the divine will.
