393 AD: Council of Hippo (North Africa): approved list of OT and NT canon, the same as the Council of Trent list.
397 AD: Council of Carthage (North Africa): approved list of OT and NT canon, the same as the Council of Trent list.

These were LOCAL counsels not ecumenical and carried no weight with the headship of the church.

The books remained optional and not canonical and they were continued to be held as “spiritual readings” as opposed to inspired in Jerome’s translation

At no time did God remove the care and authority over the OT from the Jews , to whom the books were given, and give it to the Christian church
