    just wanted to know if there are any history books or documents that contain the decree…



    A short response would be the Catholic Encyclopedia article, (1914 Catholic Encyclopedia)

    Another good read would be Msgr. Philip Hughes book A History of the Catholic Church. It is a three volume set, and can be found in most good libraries. There are other good histories of the Church. I’ll poke around and see if there are books I can find. There was also a good series, (150 vol) Encylopedia of Catholic Knowledge, which had a volume or two on Biblical Inspiration. my set is in a box in storage, So it may take a little time to find.


    just wondering…are there any documentaries about the canonization of the bible?(other than St. Michael’s Media’s “Where did the bible come from?”) because in national geographic they dont want to mention that pope damasus has something to do with it, they just mention the fathers…

    it seems that only catholic sources could tell the whole truth in regards to the creation of the bible(obviously because of the fact that catholics created the bible) and protestants just hide obvious catholic interventions when it comes to their history of the bible,

    but are there any neutral historians (kinda like Jews and atheists) that admit that the Catholic church created the bible?
