In spiritual terms a shroud is a mark of respect for the dead. As a garment, it is meant to convey decency.
Psychological / emotional perspective: In a dream a shroud can be a frightening image, since it is associated with death. It can also signify the covering up of something we do not fully understand. We know that it is there, but we do not wish to confront it.
Material aspects: If we recognize that by shrouding something it becomes hidden, then the image is more manageable. In times gone by, the shroud was a set of ropes used by sailors. This image surfaces in dreams when we deliberately tie something up in order to make it safe – shrouded from view. You might also like to consult the entry for sailing / sails.
