This manuscript addresses the issue of whether a woman should cover her head in a public worship service. It contains an exposition of First Corinthians and a brief summary of early church interpretation. Background and Context.   Showing exact prescriptions for cutting vs. not cutting hair (related to veiling) cannot be absolute even when there are appeals to “nature” is evident in comparing a verse like 1 Cor. with Acts where St. Paul apparently allowed his hair to grow as per the Nazarite vow for a season without dishonor, and that Christian monastics.

      Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Allah does not accept the prayer of a woman who has reached puberty unless she wears a veil. Abu Dawud, Book 2, Number In a recent book by Lloyd Llewellyn-Jones, Aphrodite's Tortoise: The Veiled Woman of Ancient Greece (Classical Press of Wales, ), it is argued that Greek women frequently pulled this garment across the lower part of the face, as a way of veiling the face.

The deeper point of this fact is that God, in this act, opened the Covenant to the whole world, breaking down the wall that separated the rest of the world from a benefit given.
