No; it was a type of hat used specifically used for women whenever they went out the house. http://www.encyber.com/search_w/ctdetail.php?gs=ws&gd=&cd=&d=&k=&inqr=&indme=&p=1&q=%BB%F1%B0%AB&masterno=86908&contentno=86908

Somehow we're all secretly bashing something pious when reading a book that is neutral in content, and thusly we should remain mired in ignorance of what really went on, especially in this time and age when accusations are made against the Church all the time? It's quite clear that Eustochium was deliberately excluding pious works for the vain reason of them not sounding good enough.

Honest and fair enough.

Really? Have you been reading both this and the curl thread? Given what he's said about arousing lust in people via looking at faces in both this and also in the curl thread, am I to assume I can't look on the face of a saint? Am I to assume we need to make covers for statuary of the saints?

And what about Holy Communion? Is it a near occasion of sin for a priest and altar server to administer Holy Communion to a woman if they can see a tongue, a neck and a chin? This is all absurd.
He still hasn't answered me. I am waiting for his reply, because to me he seems more Muslim than Christian..........

Isn't that what you said about me as well? Luigi is the most Catholic person here.

Interesting site.

It helps us to see more clearly how public modesty in dress went completely down the drain in this last century, especially in the last 50 years.

The site makes a few false statements, such as this one:

Quote:The early Christian women veiled their heads not only in church, but also anytime they were in public.

From my later study of church history, I discovered that Christian women continued to maintain this practice through the all centuries up to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

That is absolutely not true. From the Renaissance onward, lay women usually wore their hair uncovered indoors, and sometimes outdoors too. Women wearing headcovers outdoors, outside of church, was generally a point of fashion or practicality (particularly in the age of intense outdoor labour and before central heating), not Christian modesty.

The point is that one should try to avoid things that are not suited to their state; hence learning languages for one who doesn't need to use them is a waste of time, in my opinion.

We are also to use our God-given talents. So learning a language, or anything really, even for the recreational purpose of exercising the mind, is acceptable.

I fixed the image of the Korean hat to be smaller. Is that better?

I admit, I have an unfair advantage with my 24" widescreen monitor.
