Summary The exile is a central turning point in Israel's construction of the past as it is recorded in the Hebrew Bible. The latter's concept/s of exile are involved, among others, in constructions of patriarchal narratives, the Egyptian sojourn and slavery that led to the Exodus, and the motif of "the empty land" during the Babylonian period. Moreover, ancient Israelite concepts of exile have exerted much influence in later Christian and Jews discourses. This volume gathers papers presented at two workshops organized by the University of Munich and the University of Alberta.
