    Re: Forgotten Books of Eden and the Lost Books of the Bible

    You can find *more apocryphal books here.






    *That's additional apocryphal books as opposed to apocryphal books that are even more apocryphal than the previous apocryphal books.

    British Library buys $14.3M ancient gospel


    This photo, released by The British Library Tuesday April 17 2012, , shows the St. Cuthbert Gospel, a remarkably preserved palm-sized book which is a manuscript copy of the Gospel of John in Latin which was bought from the British branch of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), the library said Tuesday April 17, 2012. The small book - 96 mm (3.8 inches) by 136 mm (5.4 inches) - has an elaborately tooled red leather cover. It comes from the time of St. Cuthbert, who died in 687, and it was discovered inside his coffin at Durham Cathedral when it was reopened in 1104. Photo: AP / The British Library
    LONDON (AP) — The British Library has paid 9 million pounds (US$14.3 million) to acquire the St. Cuthbert Gospel, a remarkably well-preserved survivor of seventh-century Britain described by the library as the oldest European book to survive fully intact.

    The palm-sized book, a manuscript copy of the Gospel of John in Latin, was bought from the British branch of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), the library said Tuesday.

    The book measures 96 mm (3.8 inches) by 136 mm (5.4 inches) and has an elaborately tooled red leather cover. It comes from the time of St. Cuthbert, who died in 687, and it was discovered inside his coffin when it was opened in 1104 at Durham Cathedral.

    The British Library said the artifact is one of the world's most important books.

    "To look at this small and intensely beautiful treasure from the Anglo-Saxon period is to see it exactly as those who created it in the seventh century would have seen it," said the library's chief executive, Lynne Brindley.

    "The exquisite binding, the pages, even the sewing structure survive intact, offering us a direct connection with our forebears 1300 years ago," she added.

    Cuthbert's coffin arrived in Durham after monks had removed it from the island of Lindisfarne, 330 miles (530 kilometers) north of London, to protect the remains from Viking raiders in the ninth and 10th centuries.

    The book will be displayed at the British Library in London and then in Durham, northeast England, next year.

    It depends on what exactly you mean by "apocrypha". What many today call "apocrypha" were not what the early Christians considered to be apocrypha. "Apocrypha" to them would be books like the Gospel of Judas and other spurious and heretical works.

    Depending on which father you read, books were divided into three categories: those which are suitable to be read in the churches (meaning in the liturgical cycle of readings); those books which are good to be read, but not suitable to be read in the churches; those books which are apocrypha. Most of the books that many today refer to as "apocrypha" fall into the second category of books. However, some of them fall into the first category. If you google some of the earlier councils that dealt with the canon of Scripture (i.e., that which is read in the churches), most of them included a few of the "apocryphal" books, and they excluded some of what the Protestants would consider to be "canonical" books.

    So "secondary" really just means that they were not considered suitable to be part of the liturgical cycle of readings. And if you read through the Old Testament readings in the Orthodox lectionary, you'll find that there aren't a whole lot. And the ones that are there are there for a reason. For example, during Lent there will be readings from Isaiah. However, not every part of Isaiah is included.

    Also, there are specific feasts and events that have readings from or allude to passages from the Old Testament, and those are not part of the normal cycle of readings. But since they're used in the churches, they're "on the list".

    So for us, it's not as simple as "this is part of the Bible and this isn't."

    ODE CHAPTER 34 (from the odes of solomon)

    True poetry--pure and simple

    1 No way is hard where there is a simple heart.

    2 Nor is there any wound where the thoughts are upright:
    3 Nor is there any storm in the depth of the illuminated thought:
    4 Where one is surrounded on every side by beauty, there is nothing that is divided.

    5 The likeness of what is below is that which is above; for everything is above: what is below is nothing but the imagination of those that are without knowledge.

    6 Grace has been revealed for your salvation. Believe and live and be saved. Hallelujah.
