Therefore, for Augustine 1 Esdras meant Septuagint 1 Esdras and not the Hebrew Ezra.

Neither 1 nor 2 Esdras is part of the Protestant canon, but since the Council of Trent 1 Esdras has been recognized by the Catholic church as deutero-canonical, though Jerome relegated it to an appendix in his Latin Vulgate.
