Again it comes down to which canon. Why did the western Church remove Mannasseh, and 3 and 4 Macc?
No one canon has ever been universally accepted by the entire Church Militant. Some canons in the early Church were smaller.
I think the Prayer of Manasseh is a incredible book. The EO considers it canonical. Why not we in the west?
So it isn’t a matter of “adding” or “removing” books. Trent is a council for the Church in communion with Rome only.
Chapter 14 of Daniel is in Luther’s translation. Here is his commentary:
Here follow several pieces which we did not wish to translate [and include] in the prophet Daniel and in the book of Esther. We have uprooted such cornflowers (because they do not appear in the Hebrew versions of Daniel and Esther). And yet, to keep them from perishing, we have put them here in a kind of special little spice garden or flower bed since much that is good, especially the hymn of praise, Benedicite, is to be found in them. But the texts of Susanna, and of Bel, Habakkuk, and the Dragon, seem like beautiful religious fictions, such as Judith and Tobit, for their names indicate as much. For example, Susanna means a rose, that is, a nice pious land and folk, or a group of poor people among the thorns; Daniel means a judge, and so on. Be the story as it may, it can all be easily interpreted in terms of the state, the home, or the devout company of the faithful.
Luther’s view that, while he is very fond of these, they were not in the Hebrew.
I really don’t know what other communions did with them. You’ll have to ask them.
Of this, Jerome says:
The statement of Scripture in this passage, “He cried out with a great voice,” may seem, because of its reference to an idolator ignorant of God, to refute the observation put forth a little previously, that the expression “great voice” is found only in connection with saints. _This objection is easily solved by asserting that this particular story is not contained in the Hebrew of the Book of Daniel. If, however, anyone should be able to prove that it belongs in the canon, then we should be obliged to seek out some answer to this objection._
