Abstract [en]

The purpose of this chapter is to explore the construction of children's agency in the book of Exodus and to see what aspects of this construction that are emphasized in two examples of contemporary reception. The first part deals with the extent of children's vision, speech and action as well as the rights and duties proscribed for children. The latter part relates the image of the child in Exodus to the Church of Sweden's liturgical readings as well as to the debate on children's nature and upbringing between the two Danish child psychologists Jesper Juul and Bent Hougaard.
