The shroud of Turin
The shroud of Turin

The Shroud of Turin is a centuries old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. Millions believe this man to be Jesus of Nazareth. It is not definitely determined if it is really the cloth that wrapped his crucified body, or is it simply a medieval forgery, a hoax perpetrated by some clever artist, even if modern science has completed hundreds of thousands of hours of detailed study and intense research on the Shroud of Turin. It is, in fact, the single most studied artifact in human history, and we know more about it today than we ever have before. And yet, the controversy still rages.
