Modesty and the various forms it can take seem to be a hot topic. Mostly because it’s being brought up in the context of being an artifact from Christian religion, a mental shackle that restrains one from achieving true Pagan-ness. When it’s pointed out that modesty was around, in forms such as veiling, before Christianity, the replies tend to reflect a concentration on why the veiling was done, namely as a form of oppression in male dominated cultures of yore. As though, to revive a tradition from the past one must also bring forth the cultural norms of the time as well, which I hope you agree, is a suspect attempt to invalidate the revival. Not even the re-constructionists in the Pagan community go that far.
