Skip to comments.Shroud of Turin can’t be a fake, researchers say: Scientists unable to replicate cloth’s

The Shroud of Turin is very likely not the product of Medieval fakery, say Italian researchers who used modern technology to test the holy cloths authenticity.
Over five years of work, the scientists blasted modern linen with ultraviolet light and examined X-rays of the fabric, attempting to replicate the stunning Christ-like image exhibited in the Shroud.
The findings, released in November by Italys National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Development, showed they achieved a very superficial, Shroud-like coloration of linen yarns, according to a report on msnbc.com.
It fell way short of the characteristics of the real Shroud, however. They concluded therefore that Jesuss supposed burial cloth could not have been doctored in Medieval times, as has been theorized during past studies, some of which relied on radiocarbon dating of fiber samples.
We have shown that the most advanced technology available today is unable to replicate all the characteristics of the Shroud image, lead researcher Paolo Di Lazzaro told msnbc.com in an email.
As a consequence, we may argue it appears unlikely a forger may have done this image with technologies available in the Middle Ages or earlier.

Looks like Jesus to me. Are there any other photos we can compare it to? :-)
I’m convinced it is the face of Christ, imprinted for us to have one more sign of God’s incarnation among us.
“Jesus therefore said to him, ‘Unless you see signs and wonders you will not believe.’” (John (RSV) 4:48)
“For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles,” (1Corinthians (RSV) 1:22-23)

This seems to be a report on an original article posted before:
I’d suggest making comments at the original post.
yes, actually there is
It is called the Selennium (or something similar in spelling) and it said to be the cloth used to wipe his face that left an image
No, but I think there are several pieces of toast you can compare it to. ;-)
Didn’t a guy by the name of Douglas Wilson show a couple of years ago how the shroud could have been a made? I think he was a pastor or something in Idaho at the time.
Suderium, I think
Merry CHRISTmas, all.
Veronica’s Veil, The Veil of Veronica, or Sudarium (Latin for sweat-cloth).
As Jesus carried his cross, he paused and wiped his face on Veronica’s Veil, and His image was imprinted on it.
It’s two week’s ago ~ nothing wrong with creating a new thread now and discussing the same material here.
BTW, thanks for referencing the original ~ I missed it.
There will always be believers and disbelievers.
Just as there will always be Truthers that believe 911 was faked.
I have Faith that the cloth is real.That Jesus Christ was the son of God and that Mary was virgin.
If others do not have Faith, that is their problem.
Can anyone go see the supposed Veronica’s Veil?
looks like anyone can go see this veil
