The study first briefly outlines European and indigenous historiographic productions examining the relationship between dreams and death. It also focuses on a semiotic definition of the space of sleep and dream on the basis of period printed sources and manuscripts. The core of the paper consists of an overview and subsequent typology of the interconnections between sleep and death, as it emerges from the early modern Czech and Saxon sources.
