March 9, 2008 by FollowingTheAncientPaths at wordpress blogs

This personal testimony by a headcovering Christian gives reasons and reactions to a decision to start wearing a headcovering, when many around do not feel the same convictions. She included a few links at the end of this entry as well. Interesting comments were also received by her readers. Recommended reading.

"Women Prayed and Prophesied in 1 Cor 11:5"

A short comparative analysis of three "takes" (discussing "Complementarian" and "Egalitarian" explanations, if big words are your thing) on the passage: "But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—it is the same as having her head shaved." (1 Cor 11:5, TNIV) Some discussion follows.


"Early Christian Face Veiling"

by Bryce Haymond, posted on July 22, 2008, at, of LDS (Mormon)

A little mentioned or studied part of covering the head includes that of face covering, or veiling. The article doesn't mention any scripture, so the comments in the discussion that follows refer to the only New Testament scripture dealing with covering - that of women covering their heads, in 1 Corinthians 11.


And if you're getting in too deep, take a breather with a more light-hearted approach to this subject, and a few others, in "Byzantine, Texas: The Onion Dome - On babushkas and yayas".
