In 1 Cor 11:2-16 Paul negotiates between theological ideals (11:11- 12) and his assumptions about the sexuality of men, women, and angels. Paul’s instructions derive from what he assumes is proper to the ordering of the cosmos. It is therefore less important to decide whether in 11:10 Paul is concerned with “good” or “bad” angels.
