    There was a lot of thought behind the style - and controversy.

    What was the deal with that monk haircut? In this episode of Vox Almanac, Phil Edwards explores the history and controversy behind the style.
    Known as "tonsure," the typical monk hairstyle has many variations throughout religions. The particular hairstyle worn by Christian monks has its own variations and controversies as well. Three different types of tonsure were popular: a coronal tonsure, a Pauline tonsure, and a third Celtic tonsure that came to represent the differences between the Roman Catholic and Celtic Catholic church.
    The winding path of this tonsure is a new way to look at the division within the religion and the unpredictable ways something like hair can represent faith.

Excellent video, but Franciscans are friars not monks. Monks separate themselves from community while friars live as a part of the community.

Either you’ve illustrated the “Pauline Tonsure” incorrectly, or it wasn’t used like that in Eastern Orthodoxy. It’s hard to find any icon with a saint with a completely shaved head. Eastern Orthodox monks don’t shave their bodies in any way.

Misleading title. Not much information. Instead of explaining why monks have that haircut, they go on about the "Celtic tonsure". And that tonsure is only described by this one researcher! This is another low quality video from Vox. Promising to explain one thing, then either getting it completely wrong or not explaining it at all. I'm looking at you, "Christmas Chord"!

FYI, St. Francis was not a monk. He, along with his followers are friars. The practice of wearing ones hair in a tonsure is still being done by some Benedictine monasteries. It’s required by novices entering into their first year or novitiate.

LOL Title is misleading. You never explain why they wear their hair like this except for the cynical reason that they are just being fashionable. You also say that the difference in the tonsure is a sign of "serious differences in religious practice" (not sure how this could be if the tonsure is just a fashion, but never-mind that). Um...what are they? You say the Easter date changed, okay. The other one is DIFFERENCE IN THE TONSURE ITSELF. So you're saying the difference in the tonsures reflects the difference in the tonsures. Brilliant. You could have made a one-minute video that said that "the disciplines in the Celtic and Roman tradition were different. Then they united. They the disciplines were the same." Couldn't do that though. That wouldn't make the Roman Church look like an oppressor, which is really the goal of this muddled video.

I has to do with the appearance of a halo, as with many solar gods. Most notably Saturn, as Saturn worship is a third of all attention given in spirituality. Yes, Saturn is and always has been a "solar" God.

Buddhist monks shaved their heads as a sign of letting go of attachment because back in the day, in the region having long hair was a sign of manliness and men were pretty attached to it.
