Website Review: The Shroud of Turin Website

A review based on:


The Shroud of Turin is a centuries-old linen cloth bearing the image of a crucified man, which millions believe is the image of Christ himself. This website keeps users informed of current research on the Shroud, and also provides accurate data from previous research. Of special interest is a large Shroud of Turin Online Library which includes information on topics such as the history of the Shroud, a Shroud booklist, a list of Shroud Centers, the 1978 Scientific Examination, a section on religion and philosophy, and much more. This site is an exciting and informative resource for Shroud study — both devotional and scholarly.
