During our visit to Jerusalem, we stayed at the Pontifical Institute Notre Dame of Jerusalem Center. A nice hotel, with good food and a beautiful chapel. One of the most interesting aspects of the center is the museum that is dedicated to the Shroud of Turin. Although it is not very large, is covers the most recent scientific discoveries concerning the shroud. As a scientist, I was convinced by the quality of the science done and became the basis for believing that it is authentic.
Just recently I read an article on Zenit about one of the scientist involved in the research. At one point, he said:
For me, once I came to the conclusion from the science that it was authentic, I came to understand how meaningful it is. This is like a forensic document of the Passion, and for Christians around the world this has got to be the most significant relic because it accurately documents everything that is told in the Gospels of what was done to Jesus.Read the entire article using the link below.
