Written by Jews and Christians between 200 B.C.E. and 200 C.E., this is a broader category of writings than the Apocrypha, because it includes not only the writings of the Apocrypha, but other writings as well.

As a whole, these writings are significant because they demonstrate some of the religious and social influences that took place in the centuries between the Old Testament and New Testament.
