Wikipedia.org/***APOCRYPHA-- Book of Judith--is a deuterocanonical book, included in the Septuagint and the Catholic & Eastern Orthodox Christian Old Testament of the Bible, but excluded from Jewish texts & assigned by Protestants to the Apocrypha. The book contains numerous historical anachronisms, which is why many scholars now accept it as non-historical; it has been considered a parable or perhaps the first historical novel. It is not recognized as canonical in most Christian Sects.
