The word 'concordance', as title of an alphabetical list of all
the words in the Bible to references, seems to have been
first used by Hugo de Sancto Claro, whose concordance of
the Vulgate was produced about 1244 and printed with
modifications in 1479.

Interspersed among the canonical books of the Old Testament in the
Latin Vulgate Bible are contain additional books and chapters. It is to
these that Prostestant usage generally assigns the town "Apocrypha."
In English versions the Apocrypha are usually presented as 15
separate books.

I Esdras, II Esdras, Tobit, Judith, Additions to the Book of Esther,
The Wisdom of Solomon, Ecclesiasticus, Baruch, Epistole to Jeremiah,
The Prayer of Azariah and the Song of the 3 Young Men, Susanna, Bel and
the Dragon, The Prayer of Manasseh, The First Book of Maccabees,
The Second Book of Maccabees.

Tobit - named after its hero, who is pictured as an 8th C. B.C. Naphtalite
carried into exile to Nineveh. His story becomes entwined with that of his
kinswoman Sarah, exiled in Eubatana. The tragedies of both are remidied
through the adventures of Tobit's son Tobias, whom Sarah marries, and all
under the angel Raphael's supervision.
