Alexander's Revenge


The impact of Alexander the Great's legacy `was unsurpassed in terms of cultural impact for subsequent centuries'. This collection of twelve essays explores Alexander's cultural ideals that lived on after his death in various spheres of life, including education, literature, art, philosophy, music and the cultural imagination. Taking an interdisciplinary approach they explore different aspects of western civilisation from Alexander's death through to the modern era. The contributors examine Alexander's legacy in the Letters of Paul, portraiture, on the Church Fathers, in medieval cosmopolitanism and contact with foreigners.
