Rethinking Ancient Literacy Rates

One of my PhD students, Brian Wright, has a good piece in TrinJ arguing that ancient literacy rates were probably quite higher than the 10-15% normally estimated for them.

See his piece: Brian J. Wright, “Ancient Literacy in New Testament Research: Incorporating a Few More Lines of Enquiry,” TrinJ 36 (2015): 161-89.
