The collective writings of the early church “fathers,” the decisions of the ecumenical councils, and the decisions of the popes constitute this authoritative church tradition.

The Council of Trent officially pronounced eleven books of the Apocrypha to be Scripture. The result is that the Roman Catholic Bible today includes in the Old Testament seven extra books and four additions to existing books.
