A Question About Christian Headcovering from History

Question from LesRiley.net, from August of 2006:
"Can any of you who do not (or anyone who does) believe in a "literal" interpretation of I Cor 11 name one significant, conservative, Bible commentator prior to 1800 who espoused the theory that the headcovering was hair ? or something to be taken as "symbolic only" ? or a cultural thing that applied only to this time/ situation ?"
A link to this forum was posted recently by rileydad at wordpress. Sometimes, in our study of a subject, it is important to notice how the subject has been approached in history. And this subject of Christian women covering their heads during prayer and prophecy as written in 1 Corinthians 11 has always - apparently - been understood literally.
