Resumo

BOTHA, Pieter J.J.. 'I am writing this with my own hand...': Writing in New Testament times. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2009, vol.30, n.2, pp. 115-125. ISSN 1609-9982.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ve.v30i2.209.

When the New Testament and early Christian writings are considered as situated, culturally mediated and historically functional events, the pitfall of a binary contrast between literacy and orality should be avoided. Focus should be on the physical and experiential aspects of ancient writing. Discussions of posture, education, cost and the amount of time involved in physical writing in Greco-Roman times are concluded by an analysis of the disposition of subservience that surrounded writing.

Palavras-chave : writing; New Testament; literacy; orality; authorship.
