Synopsis by Leslie Birdwell
The Shroud of Turin is venerated by some, scoffed at by others. What is the story behind this piece of cloth, marked with the image of a crucified man? Is it a miracle, or a miraculous hoax? Evidence is examined, including traces of blood and pollen on the fabric. The Shroud was subject to the latest available diagnostic tests, and the known history of the Shroud is traced. Is this the face of Christ? And how did this extraordinary fabric come to bear the imprint of a man show suffered? This video was the official documentary of the 1998 display of the Shroud in Turin, Italy, and produced by the Capuchin Friars.
