Shroud of Turin


apologies if this is old hat, but I would like to hear what other people have to say about the Shroud of Turin, especially on these points:

  • The Shroud shows an image that was unintelligible until recently. Why would a 14th c. hoakster create an image that nobody could see?

  • There was pollen from Palestinian plants imbedded in the Shroud.

  • The Shroud shows Christ crucified through the wrists, a practice that the Romans would have used, but was not commonly known in the 14th century.

If this has already been discussed to death, apologies. Is there a search function on this forum?


Have you seen this site?

I don’t think a hoakster could have pulled this one off.
