Talk:Psalms of Solomon

Just about totally disputed[edit]

I'm going to insist on a reference for the assertion in this article that the PssSol are considered canonical by the Orthodox. While they may indeed be found in some mss of the LXX, they are not in fact canonical that I have every heard about. So-- Who sez? TCC (talk) (contribs) 19:26, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

You needn't insist, a request should be sufficient, better yet edit it as you see fit. The offending sentence was inserted by an anonymous editor who only made edits on one day in September 2005, unless he/she later registered. There are two possibilities for misinterpretation that I can see. The other editor may have confused Psalms of Solomon with Wisdom of Solomon or Odes of Solomon, and the article only says the book is accepted, not canonical, which I view as different, although I can see why to some readers it may imply being in the canon. If you are familiar with the Orthodox position, please correct the record. --Blainster 20:35, 7 April 2006 (UTC)
I don't want to cut it if there's information somewhere that supports it, improbable as that might seem in my opinion. I've had trouble recently with editors who come in like gangbusters and make massive (and from my POV, highly dubious) changes without any discussion, and it's been driving me nuts. So as to avoid doing the same thing, I wanted to give whoever put the information in the opportunity to defend it before I did anything with it. TCC (talk) (contribs) 20:44, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

More on Greek Orthodox canon[edit]

I removed the recent anon. assertion that P of S is part of the Greek canon. The Oxford Annotated NRSV Bible states that the Greek Orthodox church uses the Catholic deuterocanonical books plus 1 Esdras, Psalm 151, the Prayer of Manasseh, and 3 Maccabees (4 Maccabees is in the appendix but not considered canonical). The online Encyclopedia Britannica states that the P of S is not part of any scriptural canon. This agrees with the position of editor TCC. A change will require good sources. --Blainster 20:00, 6 October 2006 (UTC)
