New book claims Shroud of Turin from the first century
A professor from the University of Padua has released a new book claiming that the Shroud of Turinâ€”the linen robe in which Jesus was allegedly buriedâ€”does actually date back to the time of Christ.
The book is the latest contribution to a centuries-old debate about the origin and function of the cloth. Believers who revere the shroud claim it was used to bury Christ and believe it carries an imprint of His face and body. Meanwhile, skeptics dismiss it as a medieval artistic forgery.
