The Alexander romances connected with the Almohadized and Almohadizing Jews and Christians of the Iberian Peninsula in the early thirteenth century reveal much more of their own lives than that of the subject himself. In this respect, the battle at Las Navas and the year 1212 are not a turning point signaling an ideological sea-change; rather, they and the Alexandrine response to them are a marker of literary affinities, continuity of purpose, and a pervasive, persistent, and diachronic intertextuality.

This manuscript is also based on the Latin translation by Leo of Naples, but it represents a different version of the Hebrew translation, with its own characteristics. Kazis printed a Hebrew version (1962) based on the Paris manuscript Ms. Héb.

The reader is presented here with a study of the text of a Hebrew manuscript which is a medieval version of the Alexander Romance or the legendary history of Alexander the Great. The Hebrew text in this unique manuscript, known as MS London, is a translation of the Historia de Preliis Alexandri Magni, a widespread Latin version on the Alexander Romance. The Latin text was very useful for establishing an almost complete text of the London version and for identifying names and terms. A comparison of our text with other Hebrew sources on Alexander was of similar help in establishing a correct reading. The introduction which precedes the text and the English translation offers a survey of research into the history and development of Alexander traditions in Greek, Latin and Hebrew literature as well as a detailed analysis of the present text concerning its language, style and themes. This study is concluded by selective notes to the text and indices on personal and geographical names and foreign terms with their Latin equivalents.
