Veiling isn't a new concept. Jewish women did so (I believe those who were privileged), Christian women I think did given what Paul says in Corinthians. Muslim women veil for modesty and possibly cultural reasons.

Hestia is veiled. I think Greek women veiled, but I don't know if it was just for the upper classes or not.

Oya, in my dreams, comes to me veiled.

What do you think the purpose of the veil is? Do you veil or not? Why? Do you veil for a specific purpose, just for prayer? Is there a significance for it as in the "veil between the worlds" to signify liminal space, in ritual or on a person?

Is it for women only or men too?
