Shroud of Turin
Also known as the Holy Shroud and the Sacred Sindone.
An ancient strip of linen bearing bloodstains and the brownish image of a bearded man, which was believed by many people to be the actual burial cloth of Jesus Christ.
The shroud, 4.34 meters (14 feet 3 inches) long and 1.09 meters (3 feet 7 inches) wide, can be traced through documentation back to 1354, but its history before that date is obscure. Since 1578 it has been preserved and venerated in St. John's Cathedral in Turin.
Photographed for the first time in 1898, the image on the shroud (of the front and back of a crucified man about 2 meters (6 feet) tall) was revealed to be negative rather than positive. Details of the biblical account of Christ's burial specifically the anointing of the body conflict with the natural possibility of an imprint such as that on the Shroud of Turin, and Vatican-sponsored carbon-dating tests conducted in 1988 indicated that the shroud itself dates no earlier than 1260.
The Shroud has been studied over the years by many people, experts and scientists, several of whom published their finds. But no satisfactory explanation until today have been put forward.
