'Does Paul endorse convention in 1 Corinthians 11:16?' English 'convention', like Latin consuetudo and Greek συνήθεια accentuates by its prefix a custom that is the conscious practice of a collectivity. But for which collectivity does Paul use the term συνήθεια in 1 Cor 11:16? Does it refer to the circles whose practice Paul criticises? Or is Paul classifying the traditions παραδόσειϛ he handed on to them (1 Cor 11:2) as a convention held both by himself and 'the churches of God' (11:16), sc. the non-Pauline churches)?
