Abstract :
In what follows I will present an Arabic text that solves the chronological problem of the transmission of the legend, and refers as well to the incarnation motif. I will then suggest an interpretation of the cultural context of the legend that can account for the difference in emphases between the European versions and the Eastern ones.
