# Apocrypha

"But what is an Apocrypha? The very etymology of the term shows that it is simply a secret book, i.e., one that belonged to the catalogue of temple libraries under the guardianship of the Hierophants and initiated priests, and was never meant for the profane. Apocrypha comes from the verb Crypto, [[krupto]], \to hide."- The Secret Doctrine by H. P. Blavatsky -- Vol. 2: ENOICHION-HENOCH.
