Dance Of the Seven Veils

The true origins of the infamous ‘dance of the seven veils’ supposedly danced by Salome for the head of John the Baptist, is indeed a mystery. That said, there is within biblical academia an understanding that when ‘dancing’ is mentioned in the Old Testament, it does indeed refer to a long tradition of ecstatic dancing, upon which no prohibitions were placed. More from Robert Sepehr, author and anthropologist.
