Was reading on Wikipedia, and this came up and intrigued me. (Yes I know Wikipedia isn’t the most reliable of places…)
“The Council of Trent on April 8, 1546, by vote (24 yea, 15 nay, 16 abstain) approved the present Roman Catholic Bible Canon including the Deuterocanonical Books.”
Waaaait… what? Is this true? If the canon of scripture was set in stone as some Catholics like to claim before this point, then how come 15 cardinals/bishops voted no to the canon, and 16 abstained?! You’d think it would be a bit more unanimous than that??
