Thank you all. I too am not sure if the distinction I make is helpful, and I certainly don't want to go snootily around slapping "oral culture" on anything I don't agree with.
It does strike me, though, that Bible study is such an important part of Protestant belief yet it leaves few written records. Any archivist abhors a vacuum with few or no records. This just intrigues me from an info sci/information seeking behavior standpoint - in which, if you are sane, you have no similar interest.
Which came first: the shimmy, or the hip?
