The subject of the Old Testament canon has been a matter of debate between Protestants and Roman Catholics for centuries. In the sixteenth century, the Council of Trent officially accorded the
canonical status, decreeing these writings to be inspired Scripture. Roman apologists assert that Trent merely affirmed what had been the universal practice of the Church beginning with the North African Councils of Hippo and Carthage in the late fourth century.
In this work, William Webster documents the history of the Old Testament canon and the
from the Jewish age up to the time of the Reformation. The historical evidence conclusively demonstrates that the Jews did not accept the
as part of the inspired corpus of the Old Testament, that many of the early Church fathers followed the Jewish canon in rejecting the
, and that the Church throughout the middle ages, including the period of the Reformation itself, followed the opinion of Jerome in denying the
full canonical status. The writings were considered useful for the purposes of edification and for reading in the churches but were not authoritative for the establishment of doctrine.
This work provides extensive documentation from the writings of the most renowned theologians of the Church from the sixth to the sixteenth centuries, much of which has been translated into English for the first time. The documentation gives convincing evidence that Trent's decree, rather than affirming the universal practice of the Church, was, in fact, contrary to it.
