The time of the Babylonian captivity (c.587-539 BCE) is of seminal importance for the formation of the Hebrew Bible, as well as for the religious development of Judaism. Previous studies of this era have usually privileged the perspective of the community of exiles in Babylon (the Golah), and the period is known as the Exilic Age. This contribution focuses on the population that remained in the homeland of Judah, and argues that, form their viewpoint, the years following the destruction of Jerusalem in 587 BCE would be better undersood as the Templeless period.
