L’image d’Alexandre le Conquérant chez les chroniqueurs byzantins

Abstract : The chapter devoted to Alexander the Great in Byzantine chronicles usually consists of a juxtaposition of heterogeneous elements : historical data, borrowings from the Alexander Romance, passages drawn from the Judaeo-Christian tradition (such as the celebrated episode of Alexander’s visit to Jerusalem). The importance given to the different components, and especially to the fabulous one, may differ significantly ; yet all the authors share the same favourable view of the Macedonian conqueror : the image of Alexander in Byzantine chronicles is part of the “rose-coloured legend”.
