That Damned Shroud

December 1981
National Review;12/25/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 25, p1526
The article focuses on the perspective of the periodical "New York Times" on the Shroud of Turin in 1981. The periodical relied upon two pieces of evidence in support of its view that the Shroud was a medieval fake. First was the reported opinion of the Bishop of Troyes in 1356 indicating that the Shroud had been cunningly painted. Second was the statement made by scientist Walter McCrone expressing that the traces of chemicals associated with pigment were present in the cloth. The discovery of the image on the cloth happened early in the twentieth century.
