Overview

Best-selling journalist, historian and author Paul Badde embarks on an exciting quest to discover the truth behind the Holy Face of Manoppello, a relic recently rediscovered and rumored to be the "veil of Veronica".

Vatican correspondent for German newspaper Die Welt, journalist Paul Badde was intrigued when he heard of a mysterious image in a remote Italian village-an image of a man's face on byssus cloth. Byssus, or sea silk, is a rare and delicate fabric woven from a silky filament produced by mollusks. It is claimed that the fabric is so thin and delicate that it is impossible to paint on-yet the image in Manoppello is clearly visible and, moreover, when laid over the image of the face on the Shroud of Turin forms a perfect match.

Experts determined that the cloth of Manoppello is not Veronica's veil, but rather the face cloth layed over the face of Jesus in the tomb. Unlike the Shroud of Turin, which is a "negative" of the image, the image on the face cloth is a "positive" of the face of Christ.

Paul Badde takes the reader along on a thrilling journey of discovery as he travels to research this remarkable relic, tracing the turbulent history of the Holy Face from ancient times up to the historic 2006 visit to Manoppello by Pope Benedict XVI.

    Author Paul Badde reveals to us that the Veil of Veronica, rumor

    Author Paul Badde reveals to us that the Veil of Veronica, rumored to be the cloth that wiped the face of Jesus Christ during the Passion, and depicted as the Sixth Station of the Cross in every Roman Catholic Church throughout the world, is thought to be on display in St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican. This book indicates that this is indeed incorrect. The Veil does not exist. There is no passage in the four Gospels of the Bible or in any other documented historical writings that this event ever occurred. What then is established is that a cloth, framed and displayed in a small church in Italy, is actually part of the garments used in the burial of Jesus Christ. When the cloth is superimposed on the face of the Shroud of Turin, it is a remarkable equal. Badde researches the facial cloth recovered from the tomb of Jesus Christ, and takes the reader through a gripping experience, tracing the cloth throughout its history. The history of the travels of this cloth is delineated in this complete study of this relic, and readers will be amazed that after two thousand years, and for hundreds of years, The Face of God can be seen in a little church in Manoppello, Italy.
