Apocrypha at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

In biblical literature, works outside an accepted canon of scripture. In modern usage the Apocrypha refers to ancient Jewish books that are not part of the Hebrew Bible but are considered canonical in Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy. Among the various books included are Tobit, Judith, Baruch, and the Maccabees as well as Ecclesiasticus and the Wisdom of Solomon. Protestant churches follow Jewish tradition in judging these works apocryphal or noncanonical. The term deuterocanonical is used to refer to works accepted in one canon but not all. Pseudepigrapha are spurious works for which biblical authorship is claimed.

pl. {Apocryphas}. [L. apocryphus apocryphal, Gr. ? hidden,
spurious, fr. ? to hide; ? from + ? to hide.]
1. Something, as a writing, that is of doubtful authorship or
authority; -- formerly used also adjectively. [Obs.]
--Locke.

2. Specif.: Certain writings which are received by some
Christians as an authentic part of the Holy Scriptures,
but are rejected by others.

Note: Fourteen such writings, or books, formed part of the
Septuagint, but not of the Hebrew canon recognized by
the Jews of Palestine. The Council of Trent included
all but three of these in the canon of inspired books
having equal authority. The German and English
Reformers grouped them in their Bibles under the title
Apocrypha, as not having dogmatic authority, but being
profitable for instruction. The Apocrypha is now
commonly ?mitted from the King James's Bible.
