Are you a member of the clergy?pensateomnia said:They certainly do have bearing in the conversation I was having, which was not with you.orthonorm said:I already dealt with the matter of the canons and their purpose and how they have no bearing here.pensateomnia said:There are several canons about priestly and monastic hair, and not impersonating priests or monks. Trullo 21 is one that mentions hair-related customs, but there are many others, which I'm not going to look up for you. Try reading Chalcedon, Trullo, Nicaea II, Protodeutera 861, Hagia Sophia 879...probably also Neocaesarea, if I recall correctly.NicholasMyra said:
