Because of the Angels

Clement of Alexandria ca. 150-215

1Co 11:10 That is why a wife ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels.

“Because of the angels.” By the angels he means righteous and virtuous men. Let her be veiled then, that she may not lead them to stumble into fornication. For the real angels in heaven see her though veiled. (Fragments: Oecumenius from Bk. III on 1 Cor. 11:10)
