Turin Shroud Enters 3D Age

For centuries, people have argued about the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin. It is one of the most controversial relics in the Christian world. Some believe it to be a physical link to Jesus of Nazareth - his crucified image imprinted onto a 1st century linen cloth. For others, it is nothing more than an elaborate medieval forgery.

I am also interested in the The Sudarium, sometimes called the other Shroud, or more correctly the face-cloth of Christ. Scientists believe it was put over the head of a corpse as part of a Jewish custom when the death was so awful that the family wouldn’t see the face going into rigor mortis. The Sudarium is referred to in John 20:5-8. It was placed over Jesus’ face on his way to the tomb so that his mother especially would be spared more anguish. Unlike the Turin Shroud which has an image of a crucified man, there is no image on the Sudarium, it contains stains of blood and lymph. Interestingly both blood types found on the Turin shroud & the Sudarium match!
