Shroud of Turin

April 1976
National Review;4/16/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 13, p379
This article focuses on a research being conducted by a commission of scientists as of April 1976 to determine whether the Shroud of Turin was the burial cloth of Jesus Christ. The Shroud linen cloth measures 14 by 3 foot. For a long period of time, it has been worshipped as a holy relic, and its markings have been thought to represent an image of Jesus Christ after He was taken down from the cross. However, with the invention of photography, the history of the Shroud had taken a new perspective. Through a photographic negative, the Shroud showed a detailed and anatomically exact image of a man who had been crucified. According to a spokesperson of the commission, the report will conclude that no evidence has been found that contradict the belief that the Shroud is the burial cloth of Jesus Christ.
