The Deuterocanonical books are: First Esdras, Second Esdras, Tobit, Judith, Additions to Esther, The Wisdom of Solomon, Ecclesiasticus, (or the Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirac), Baruch, The Letter of Jeremiah, Additions to Daniel (Song of the Three Youths; Susanna; Daniel, Bel and the Dragon), The Prayer of Manasseh, First Maccabees, Second Maccabees, Third Maccabees, and Fourth Maccabees.
Fourth Maccabees is not accepted by the Russian Church and is placed in an Appendix by the Greek Church.
The Greek Orthodox accept 1st Esdras, but not 2nd Esdras, considering 2nd Esdras to be the proto-canonical Ezra-Nehemiah. The Russian Church accepts both, but titles them 2nd and 3rd Esdras, 1st Esdras being the proto-canonical Ezra-Nehemiah.
