HEADCOVERINGS AND THE CHRISTIAN WOMAN.
"We read of old of such as were grave, that they covered themselves with a vail: And 1 Cor. 11 married women going abroad uncovered is looked upon as unnatural; What would such say if they lived in our times; we are perswaded the gravest amongst women are most averse from this evil, and the lightest are most prone and given to it ."—James Durham, The Law Unsealed: Or, A Practical Exposition of the Ten Commandments. (1675).
Heading 3.—Of an husbands superioritie over a wife, to be acknowledged by a wife.
6. The very (h - from Chrysostom. in 1 Cor. hom. 26) attire which nature and custome of all times and places have taught women to put on, confirmeth the same: as long haire, vailes, and other coverings over the head: this and the former argument doth the Apostle himself use to this very purpose, 1 Cor. 11.7 &c.
h. Sicapilli pro velamine dati sunt, qua gratia ahud addendu est velamen? Ut non tantum natura, sed etiam, voluntate subjectam se esse confiteatur. ["And if it be given her for a covering (veil)," say you, "wherefore need she add another covering (veil)?" That not nature only, but also her own will may have part in her acknowledgment of subjection.]—Chrysostom hom. 26—William Gouge, Of Domesticall Duties. (1622).
