Orality and Literacy in Early Christianity
Imprint: Cascade Books
"At last! This collection of essays by Pieter Botha is a tremendous gift to those interested in issues related to orality and literacy in the ancient world. Botha is among the leading voices in this conversation. His thoughtful and carefully crafted essays represent some of the best work in the field. This collection deserves to be a part of any conversation moving forward."
--Holly Hearon, Author of The Mary Magdalene Tradition
"For twenty years Pieter Botha has been doing foundational research on the communications media of the ancient world . . . I have repeatedly returned to his articles, learned from them again, and cited them often. Finally, we have Botha's important articles collected and easily accessible in this book."
--Richard Horsley, Author of Hearing the Whole Story
"Botha's work is a significant, historical study that cuts through dichotomous views of communication and demonstrates the complex relationship of oral and written media in antiquity. This is responsible scholarship that seeks to define 'orality' and 'literacy' as cultural activities informed by their historical settings."
--James Maxey, Author of From Orality to Orality
