The Deuterocannon or "second cannon," known in the East as the Anagignoskomena, consists of those books considered cannonical by some, but not all, branches of Christianity. Those that accept these books as canon consider them either part of the Old Testament, or intertestamental. Most Protestants consider the deuterocanonical books to be apocryphal.
