Christian headcovering is the veiling of the head by women in a variety of Christian traditions. Some cover only in public worship, while others believe they should cover their heads all the time. The Biblical basis for headcoverings is found in 1 Corinthians 11. Some appeal to custom as the basis for their practice. Most contemporary Christians, however, do not practice headcovering.
