Overview


The tide has turned. Two decades after radiocarbon dating declared the Turin Shroud a medieval fake, brand-new discoveries strongly suggest that this famous cloth is genuinely Christ's shroud after all:



* In the U.K. new High Definition television photography has startling implications for reconstructing the Shroud man's image.



* In the Sinai desert, manuscript discoveries provide evidence which refutes scientific claims that the shroud can date from no earlier than 1260.



*In eastern Turkey, the recent finding of a sixth-century mosaic face of Christ sheds fresh light on the first five centuries of the Shroud's history.



* In Berne, Switzerland, a veteran textile specialist has uncovered hitherto hidden technical features linking it to first-century Palestine.



In his 1978 international bestseller The Turin Shroud, Ian Wilson ignited worldwide public debate with his compelling case endorsing the shroud's authenticity. Now this completely rewritten and updated book provides fresh evidence to support his original argument. Shroud boldly challenges the current post-radiocarbon-dating view - that it is a fake. Ian Wilson once more throws the matter into the public arena for further debate and controversy.
