Ha-Makdoni. Images of Alexander the Great in Ancient and Medieval Jewish LiteratureAleksandra Klęczar
Dział: historia średniowiecza
Alexander the Great is an unexpected yet important hero of a number of ancient and medieval Jewish narratives. He appears in historical works, prophecies, moralizing parables and in a number of fantastic stories retelling his life and deeds. These legends were in circulation very early on: the earliest written accounts on Aleksander in Jewish tradition are older than the ones preserved from the Greco-Roman world.
