Are the Protevangelium of St. James and the Gospel of the Birth of Mary authentic documents?

Question:

Are the Protevangelium of St. James and the Gospel of the Birth of Mary authentic documents?<br />

Answer:

They are both authentic documents, but that does not mean that they are true. They are not forgeries, but they are apocryphal. As such, these writings are not inspired but may provide some otherwise useful information.
