From release notes:

New Features

  • Program Settings
    • Added application setting for “Include Deuterocanonical Books.” This setting does not currently affect any data. (See this thread.)

Okay, Logos - whose's Deuterocanonicals? Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Slavic Orthodox, Lutheran, Anglican ... and what are the LXX-based (+ a bit) Jews of Ethiopia to do? And what about the Russian sect that limits its canon to Revelation?

MJ. Smith:
I wonder if they are responding to the complaints that certain texts are treated as canonical. I would love it if we had a "Canon" setting.

I think I win the prize assuming horseshoe rules apply - closest to the stake.

Bradley posted some more information regarding this setting in this thread: http://community.logos.com/forums/t/50177.aspx

 

 


 tom collinge:

 

My question is what Deuterocanonical Books are included? Different faith traditions within Christianity use different deuterocanonical books.

 

 

All of them.

 

As noted in the popup help for that setting, this only affects Bible Facts tools (e.g., Biblical People) when data (from deuterocanonical books) is available.

 

No such data is currently available, so this setting has no effect. However, we anticipate adding this data in a future update to those resources (I don't have an estimate on the timeframe); this would possibly coincide with a reverse interlinearisation of the NRSV Apocrypha (see http://logos.uservoice.com/forums/42823-logos-bible-software-4/suggestions/514417-create-a-reverse-interlinear-for-nrsv-deuterocanon).

 

If and when we have sufficient data from different traditions of deuterocanonical books (a big "if"), this setting may be made more fine-grained.

Because it is so vague, people are going to write stories on what this setting is for.  And Logos needs to have their hands slapped for putting something out that is so vague that no one can figure it out.
Doesn't this thread count as a mild slap? <smile>

Honestly I also would like a clarification as to what this effects.

In a way, yes.  IMHO, Logos needs to do some training concerning the faiths of others.  This type of programming (offensive language to the non-Roman Catholics and to the non-protestants people) should never of happened in the first place.

I like the denomination option.

I hoping that by setting it to protestant,

1. I won't have to see the apocrypha listed as scripture in some resources.

2. I won't have to see any pictures of jesus or catholic shrines on the front pages of logos.

Catholic. Thanks for making Logos functional for Catholics. Much appreciated.
