Katakalupto Covering Is Glory To Man While Long Hair Covering Is Glory To Woman

According to I Corinthians 11:2-16, the wearing of the “katakalupto” (the Greek word) covering by the woman is tied to the glory of man, and is worn to honor and show subjection to him:

verse 7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as … the woman is the glory of the man

verse 5 … every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head (man) …

While the “peribolaion” (long hair) covering is worn for the woman’s glory:

verse 15 … if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her …

Just another indication two different coverings are being referred to and required by the passage.
