    Or rather they were, in whole or in part, too controversial in the political context of the late-Mediaeval church. Some of those books do have some status, and were not excluded because their were 'debunked'. For most of Christian history many of the books of the Apocrypha enjoyed equal status to the rest of the Old Testament. It was principally the Council of Trent in the mid-16th century that changed that status. many of them still appear fully integrated into the Orthodox OT.

    Now, I'm guessing you are referring to other books, Ludahai, that deal with NT themes. Which specifically?

    This post was in response to the Gospels, which has nothing to do with the Medieval period but rather the 4th century...

    I think this theory regarding religion is just as valid as most other theories regarding religions.

    A theory based on lies and fabrications is valid? Really?

    That's not what I said. What I said was that this theory on religion was as valid as most other theories regarding religions.

    Except it's not really a theory about religion; it's a theory concerning historical fact.
