Although each of these narratives deals with variations of the theme of survival in a hostile world the question underlying them is a different one: Who are we and who is our śother?Ł The narratives are presented as sequels to Israels history as put forward in other (now biblical) texts and presuppose Gods continuing involvement with his people. However they subtly modify the way in which Israel can or should relate to her God by suggesting alternatives for official Temple worship or bypassing the latter altogether. While older prophetic texts make use of metaphoric language portraying Israel as YHWHs unfaithful wife grieving widow or ravaged virgin Ruth Esther and Judith can be construed as embodiments of Israel of a different kind. Wetter argues for a revisioning of Israel in and through the bodies of the three female characters as a community which is simultaneously vulnerable and inviolable marginalized and empowered. Their tricksterism in all its comicality underlines the precarious situation in which the women and the community they represent are caught. Yet it also has the power to both defeat threats from outside and amend Israels selfperception on the inside. Israel no longer has to perceive of itself as a battered wife but as one who can deploy her qualities seductive and otherwise for the survival of the community.An investigation of religious and ethnic identity formation in the books of Ruth Esther and Judith which links these processes to the metaphorical and/or symbolic functions of the female protagonists.Acknowledgments AbbreviationsPart 1: Israel śJudah śYehudim The Problem of Definition and Demarcation 1 (Re)Constructing Israel: Tradition and Inv
