:Hi Magda, I think I prefer the Catholic term over the Protestant one, but I'm not sure there is a special designation for them in Orthodoxy -- they're just part fo the Bible (maybe someone can correct me on this). I do think it's useful to distinguish them in some way, so "Deuterocanonical books" may be as good as it gets. I think the category should be renamed too. — [[User:FrJohn|<b>FrJohn</b>]] ([http://www.orthodoxwiki.org/User_talk:FrJohn&action=edit&section=new talk])

What should this article be renamed? In doing the slightest research at wikipedia, there are separate articles on w:Deuterocanonical books, w:Biblical apocrypha, and w:Apocrypha. Currently we have extra-canonical writings in the Category:Apocrypha. Perhaps a disambiguation page is in order? I am unsure how to best organize (and label) these books from an Orthodox viewpoint. What are your thoughts? —magda (talk) 07:16, August 31, 2007 (PDT)

Hi Magda, I think I prefer the Catholic term over the Protestant one, but I'm not sure there is a special designation for them in Orthodoxy -- they're just part fo the Bible (maybe someone can correct me on this). I do think it's useful to distinguish them in some way, so "Deuterocanonical books" may be as good as it gets. I think the category should be renamed too. — FrJohn (talk)
