Ian BS: Jack Straw and 'The Veil' controversy (214* d) RE: BS: Jack Straw and 'The Veil' controversy 23 Oct 06

Am I correct in thinking that the phrase "To Take the Veil" means that a woman has become a novice nun. A Christion mode of dress the veil is worn as part of the habit.
The practice remains in use with the veil being part of the wedding dress in that christian ceremony. The veil is removed only after the couple are wed.

As the veil has been worn in the UK since the crusades, At that time worn more as a fashion item before intergrating it into part of the uniform of a group within the christian religion. I would have thought that we would have got used to it by now.
