It is dubious and very much DM-dependent, but see page 219 and 221 of the Core Rulebook, sub-sections "Independent-research" on both.

Wizards can make a research for new spells, or independent copies of existing spells. It takes a week and 1000gp per level of spell created. Divine casters can research spells "much as arcane casters do" and

Only the creator of such spell can prepare and cast it, unless she decides to share it with others.

What does it mean? Of course it does not give you a spellbook. But if a cleric made notes during his research, or prepared a holy writing to share his new spell with others, it would probably count as a written source.

Of course, it has caveats:

  1. DM might rule that spell research is out of his game
  2. DM might rule that divine research does not take any notes, just prayer, meditation and offerings
  3. And even if you'll find such writing, it will not be of any spell found in the Core Rulebook on divine casters' spell list.

All in all, as a DM I would allow it, as it is way too niche to really tip a balance of the game.
