      I'm in the midst of writing a background piece to music and the chantry
      industry in the 15th century.  I can't find the reference, but I'm sure I
      read somewhere that the English reformers' antipathy to the
      Deutero-canonical books of the Bible was partially shaped by the use of 2
      Maccabees 12: 43-46 (Judas' offering to the Temple for the dead) as an
      apologetic for propitiary masses for the dead.

      Can anyone give me a reference?
