Deuterocanonical Books of the Bible, most known as Apocrypha, are texts belonging to the Old Testament that are canonical for the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church, but are not included in the Hebrew Bible or in the Protestant Church.
Most were originally written in Hebrew, and a minority in Greek.
Many of the books are part of the Jewish Apocrypha, despite not being part of the Jewish canon, or are collected as traditions in the Oral Law. Some have stories of great importance in the Jewish tradition.
Historically, they have been included in all Christian Bibles prior to the 16th century reformation and the rise of Protestantism.
To this day they are still included in the Lutheran, Anglican, Anabaptist and Episcopalian Bibles, in addition to those already mentioned above.
