Inquest on the Shroud of Turin: latest scientific findings
The Shroud of Turin, believed by many to be the burial cloth of Jesus & by others to be a medieval forgery, has sparked new interest & controversy with its first public exhibition in twenty years. Some have even claimed that contamination on the cloth produced a falsely modern carbon date & that DNA traces in the bloodstains might make it possible to clone Jesus! These & other aspects of "sindonology" (shroud study) are examined in this authoritative book. Citing the contributions of distinguished experts, the author traces the biblical, historical, archaeological, iconographic, forensic, & microchemical investigations of the not-so-mysterious cloth.
