[Paul in Conflict with the Veil!?] Exegetical examination of 1. Corinthians 11,2-16, following an al­ternative view of John Lightfoot, member of the Westminster as­sembly in the 16th century. „Schirrmacher argues that from the biblical teaching that man is the head of wo­man (1 Cor 11:3) the Corinthians had drawn the false conclusions that in prayer a woman must be veiled (11:4-6) and a man is forbidden to be veiled (11:7), and that the wife exists for the husband but not the husband for the wife (11:8-9). Paul, ho­wever, rejected these conclu­sions and showed in 11:10-16 why the veiling of wo­men did not belong to God’s command­ments bin­ding upon all the Christian commu­nities. After stating the thesis and presenting his alternative translation and expo­sition of 1 Cor 11:2-16, he considers the difficulties in the text, presents his alter­native exposition in detail (in the form of thirteen theses), discusses quotations and irony in 1 Corinthians, and deals with other NT texts about women’s clothing and prayer and about the subordina­tion of wives.“ (New Testament Abstracts vol. 39 (1995) 1, p. 154).
