Review of the BL Alexander the Great Exhibition

I DON'T THINK HE LIKED IT: Alexander the Great review – cultural treasures reduced to the status of comics (Jonathan Jones, The Guardian).
British Library, London
This infuriating show shoves Scrooge McDuck next to Plutarch in a postmodern take on history which seems to forget that the Macedonian warlord was a real, live person
I noted the coming of this exhibition here. It opens tomorrow. For many PaleoJudaica posts on Alexander and his connection with ancient Jewish traditions, notably in the Alexander Romance, follow the links from there.
