For years, scientists and religious believers have been debating the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin. Rodney Hoare spent more than 20 years researching the facts surrounding the shroud and came to the conclusion that it is indeed the cloth that once contained the body of Jesus Christ. This thorough work addresses all of the issues in question including why the carbon-dating evidence of 1988 should not be accepted, how the shroud’s Middle Eastern origin can be proven, how the famed image on the shroud was created, and how the shroud traveled from Palestine to Italy. This historical detective story, in paperback for the first time, includes an update by Clare Stevens on the most recent research and findings.
Rodney Hoare is the author of The Testament of the Shroud and A Piece of Cloth. He died in 1997.
