What the Early Christians Believed About The Head Covering
What was Paul referring to in 1 Corinthians 11 when he said: “Every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head”? Was he referring to a cloth veil? Was he talking about long hair? Was this just a local custom that applied only to the Corinthians? Were women who didn’t wear veils mistaken to be prostitutes? David Bercot takes his readers to the early Christian writings to get the facts.
