  • The bible talks about the soldiers throwing lots for Jesus' Underclothing... So I would only assume that means they had something...

  • No, not normally. There's at least one passage about it, but my mind is fuzzy right now and I can't remember it.

  • i dont think they did. i remember is history learning that underwear wasnt invented until i think it was the 16 or 1700's. or maybe that was toilet paper???

  • sorta...most ppl wore loincloths & some women even wore strips of fabric over their breasts. the material depended on your wealth. also, if you were a slave underwear may have been all you got to wore.

    and ive got to admit...the word panties makes me giggle...yes im 5 years old haha

  • I guess I would assume they wore some kind of loincloth or some kind of underclothes made of linen or something like that, but I don't know know for sure.

  • OK this is going to be totally disgusting and immature...what did the women do during that time of month?? I hope they has something that could pass as undergarments. And uhh something to prevent mother nature from dripping out wherever they walked.
