A study of some of the investigations of the Shroud of Turin and of the evidence both for and against its authenticity, this work presents papers on the shroud's history and the attempts to prove or disprove the claims of its origin. Its aim is to show that questions about the date and the image on the Shroud are not yet answered. The Turin Shroud has proven to be a major challenge to scientific ingenuity and recent scientific studies have, this book argues, failed to draw satisfying conclusions. It illustrates, from a variety of examples and viewpoints, some ways in which science has explored the complexities of the Shroud. Whether or not the C14 testing is accurate, placing the cloth in the 14th century AD, is not the primary thrust of these studies but rather how well it fits in the light of the preponderance of evidence. A historian explores some specific material for the Shroud in a Byzantine setting; an archaeologist examines a bust of Christ which suggests that the Shroud existed at least as early as the 7th century AD; and a forensic examination and a discussion of some little known medical details lend support to the case for a corpse having been wrapped in the cloth. Finally, a medievalist probes the Shroud as a symbol of Christendom.
