Resumen:   The Roman d'Alexandre en prose descends from a literary tradition dating back to Late Antiquity, in which the young Macedonian is the son of an Egyptian enchanter. The confrontation of the roman with its most direct source, the Historia de Preliis, informs us about the methods of translation and the reading expectations of its Medieval public. Without modifying or embellishing its source, as Alexandre de Paris had done beforehand, this anonymous translator –by including discrete modifications- manages to shift the meaning of the text and to modernise the content by turning the eponymous character into an almost-Christian knight. The subject of this study is to understand how the Roman d'Alexandre en prose was read from the XIIIth to the XVth centuries. We have found the first guiding marks in the choice of words used to translate the text. Consequently, we have concerned ourselves with the book-object. The manuscript format, its binding as a collection, and the textual illustrations are keys that have further unlocked meaning and provided an understanding of how the book-object was received. The Roman d'Alexandre en prose proves to be a metamorphic novel. Since they all follow the same iconographic cycle that circulated in the workshops, the various manuscripts of the Roman d'Alexandre en prose offer the opportunity to study a textual tradition in parallel to an iconographic one. Similarities in the functioning between the ‘mise en roman' and the ‘mise en images' become apparent as if the miniatures were, in their own way, a translation. [Source: author]
