The question What is the “head-band” Judith gives to Anna in the Protoevangelium of James? about one of the more famous NT apocryphal text is valid and worthy of investigation.

But does the question belong in C.SE, in BH.SE, or neither?

In my opinion, the argument can be made for either:

  1. It belongs in C.SE because one thesis I found about it linked this apocrypha to the later teachings and devotions to Mary being Mother of God.

  2. It belongs in BH.SE because one thesis I found about it linked this apocrypha to a better understanding of purity, thus can have bearings on the interpretation of canonical texts.
