They called themselves the "gola," ("exiles"), or the "bene gola" ("the children of the exiles"), and within the crucible of despair and hopelessness, they forged a new national identity and a new religion.
So this period is marked by a resurgence in Jewish tradition, as the exiles looked back to their Mosaic origins in an effort to revive their original religion.

According to contemporary Babylonian records, Belshazzr (mentioned in the Book of Daniel; the Akkadian form of his name was Bel-shur-usur, meaning "Bel protects the king") was the eldest son and coregent of Nabonidus.
The Nabunaid Chronicle thus relates that the joyful acclamation of Cyrus by the Babylonians was cut short by the death of both the governor and someone else.
Although no document of Babylonian origin affirms that Belshazzar was actually present at the fall of Babylon, there is, on the otaher hand, no positive evidence against his participation in the events of 539 BC.

 Babylonian Exile and Beyond
Before the exile, Judah was a monarchy that had taken on the traditions of "Israel," the tribal community once united under King David.
After the exile, Judah was politically rebuilt as a Persian satrapy, a semi-autonomous administrative province, ruled by a priestly elite that remigrated from Babylonia and whose views and attitudes were shaped by the religious blue-prints for reconstruction drafted in the exile.
In other words, "Judaism" was not a monolithic practice and the Babylonian diaspora was not the only form in which Judah- and Israel-related traditions were continued after the destruction of the states of Israel and Judah.
