    One thought on “The Shroud”

    1. It was the late 1970s. There was a newspaper on the kitchen table. I gave its Shroud article a quick glance. I thought, even in that brief newspaper treatment, that I'd immediately discover the fact that proved the Shroud of Turin to be a moldy, embarrassing relic of a bygone era, the Catholic version of Bigfoot. The newspaper article let me down. It introduced facts that boggled my mind. The Shroud of Turin can be described as a photographic negative. How did someone in the Middle Ages create a [...]

    2. Ian Wilson has done it again! When I first read his, what became the Bible, The Turin Shroud back in 1978 I was but a kid interested in Ancient Mysteries. Now with this update he has brought some new and relevant information to the forefront. He has made the connection of the Shroud of Turin and the Image of Edessa much more plausible. He with some new documents that were found recently more pieces have now been added to the connection to the ancient trading city and pathway for Christianity. Wh [...]

    3. The Turin Shroud. Fact or fake? Ian Wilson's 'The Shroud' claims the 2000 year old mystery solved. Published 2010, this work updates Wilson's 'The Turin Shroud', published 1978. (Firstly, I've always been on the side of this historical artifact being the genuine article, even since the 1988 radiocarbon tests declared an age of between 1260 and 1390, but have never been too deeply aquainted with the facts\provenance of the Shroud as well as the Sudarium of Oviedo.)Wilson's Shroud journey is judic [...]

    4. I am giving this book 4 stars because of the vast research and conclusions presented by the author, Ian Wilson. I had the great opportunity to view the Shroud in Turin this past June, 2015. Wilson's book presents a good history of what could possibly have been the movements of the Shroud throughout history, from 30 A.D. until the previous showing in 2010. He believes that the Image of Edessa, which he has been able to research through historical documents, writings and art, and the Shroud are on [...]

    5. Utterly fascinating, especially when connected to the potential 'second witness': The Sudarium of Oviedoshroud/guscinmThe opening chapters of the book were my favorite, as The Shroud was put through the rigors of our 21st century forensic process by recognized authorities in archaeology, anthropology, botany, textiles, visual art, and the justice system, producing some remarkable results (or miraculous coincidences for skeptics).The majority of the book spends time attempting to connect the Imag [...]

    6. This was well written. Ian Wilson comes down on the side that the Shroud is really the burial cloth of Christ but he offers convincing and scholarly reasons why. He does this in a very readable style without being preachy. One problem he tackles very successfully is the Carbon Dating which, "proved" the shroud was a fake. It turns out, there is reason to doubt the findings of the Carbon dating.Do I think the Shroud is really the burial Cloth of Christ? It wouldn't surprise me but I don't need th [...]

    7. The author examines the history of the Shroud of Turin while is believed to be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ. He spent forty years researching the subject and examines both scientific and faith based evidence. The book is well written and worth the read whether you believe or not if read with an open mind. There are also numerous illustrations and photographs.

    8. BOTNS bingo-recommended by a friend-Interesting look at the history, science, & stories about the Shroud of Turin. Thanks to one of our college student Catholic Worker volunteers for the book recommendation.

    9. This is an outstanding book if you're interested in reading a sober explanation of the shroud. Roughly 2/3 of the book consists of Wilson tracing a possible history of the shroud all the way back to the first century AD. If you're a history buff this will be quite rewarding.

    10. I liked it. Yes, he is a booster for the authenticity of the cloth known as The shroud of Turin, but I thought he did a good job of presenting the various threads of evidence and letting you decide for yourself.

    11. A good book for skeptics and believers alike. If the Shroud of Turin interests you, Ian Wilson is one of the most learned, the most fair, and the least sensational writers on the subject.

    12. This book covers two aspects of the Shroud story, first it looks at the scientific background to the Shroud, the second and longer part attempts to demonstrate the identification of the Shroud with the Image of Edessa and thus provide a timeline and plot its journey from Jerusalem to France via Constantinople and the Templars.This part is very detailed as it has to be but making it a long slog ( there is an easy to follow chronology at the end which saves time!). More interesting, perhaps, are t [...]
