Roman Catholic Old Testament

Biblical scrolls

Roman Catholics, Greek Orthodox, and Ethiopian Orthodox churches include even more books in their Old Testament canons than The Jews and the Protestants. For Roman Catholics, these deuterocanonical books (meaning "second canon') of the Old Testament are Judith, the Wisdom of Solomon, Tobit, Sirach (Ecclesiasticus), Baruch, 1 and 2 Maccabees, and certain additions to the Jewish books of Esther and Daniel.
