CCSand, Hopefully, Norm will still be reading this board... Yes, I'm reading this board, when I get a chance to get onto the site. The last two months, unfortunately, have been absolutely crazy so I'm now in the process of catching up. Does the Catholic Church still teach that Moses authored the Torah/Pentateuch or is the teaching now more nuanced, e.g., that Moses began the Torah, but that other authors in his school completed it, in order to take into account that some of the laws are from a later time period, Moses can't write about his own death, etc. The Pentateuch has long been called the "books of Moses" but this term was never intended as an attribution of actual authorship. The reality is that these books were handed on orally for several centuries from the time of Moses until scribes of a much later era actually wrote them down. The same is true of the earlier historical books after the Pentateuch. The only thing documented as being written at the time of Moses was the pair of tablets containing the Decalog.Norm.
