Default Who wrote the Pauline Epistles?

It is the definitive teaching of the Magisterium that Sacred Scripture is without error.

Who wrote the Pauline Epistles?
According to Sacred infallible Scripture:

Romans - Paul
1 Corinthians - Paul and Sosthenes
2 Corinthians - Paul and Timothy
Galatians - Paul and "and all the brothers who are with me"
Ephesians - Paul
Philippians - Paul and Timothy
Colossians - Paul and Timothy
1 Thessalonians - Paul and Sylvanus and Timothy
2 Thessalonians - Paul and Sylvanus and Timothy
1 Timothy - Paul
2 Timothy - Paul
Titus - Paul
Philemon - Paul and Timothy
Hebrews - [no direct statement as to who wrote this letter]

So the modernist claim that Paul the Apostle did not write the Pauline letters implies that Scripture contains a falsehood. This implication is contrary to the definitive teaching of the Magisterium on the infallibility of Scripture.

Furthermore, the Fathers of the Church unanimously held that the Pauline Epistles were actually written by Paul (though they did not agree on Hebrews). The Council of Trent forbid anyone to interpret Scripture contrary to the unanimous consent of the Fathers.

"It [the same sacred and holy Synod] decrees, that no one, relying on his own skill, shall,--in matters of faith, and of morals pertaining to the edification of Christian doctrine, --wresting the sacred Scripture to his own senses, presume to interpret the said sacred Scripture contrary to that sense which holy mother Church,--whose it is to judge of the true sense and interpretation of the holy Scriptures,--hath held and doth hold; or even contrary to the unanimous consent of the Fathers...."
