The Apocrypha refers to the 'hidden' or 'secret' books that were not included in the canonical Holy Scriptures. The Apocryphal books were written or attributed to Jewish authors in the period between the Fourth Century BCE through the Second Century BCE. There are historical writings, legends, imaginary tales and poetry. A close reading of the Apocrypha provides us with a great deal of information on the history of the Jewish people, their outlooks and customs during this historical period.
