So, all Paul's letters that he intended should be read in church were
'not for public consumption'? I guess it depends on what you mean by
'public'? I would have thought that manuscripts intended to be read in
public on a regular basis would qualify, but perhaps not. Does one need
to be able to read in order to 'consume'?
