Shroud of Turin ‘was created by flash of supernatural light’

Wrong Holiday!  We usually get stories or scientific studies that relate to the Birth of Jesus at this time of year, not about his death and Resurrection.

Italian researchers have declared that the Shroud could not have been faked.  While we still wonder, we figured the story interesting.

 

Scientists in Italy believe the kind of technology needed to create the Shroud of Turin simply wasn't around at the time that it was created

The image on the Turin Shroud could not be the  work of medieval forgers but was instead caused by a supernatural ‘flash of light’, according to scientists.

Italian researchers have found evidence that casts doubt on claims that the relic – said to be the burial cloth of Jesus – is a fake and they suggest that it could, after all, be authentic.

Sceptics have long argued that the shroud, a rectangular sheet measuring about 14ft by 3ft, is a forgery dating to medieval times.

Scientists from Italy’s National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development spent years trying to replicate the shroud’s markings.
They have concluded only something akin to ultraviolet lasers – far beyond the capability of medieval forgers – could have created them.
 

This has led to fresh suggestions that the imprint was indeed created by a huge burst of energy accompanying the Resurrection of Christ.

‘The results show a short and intense burst of UV directional radiation can colour a linen cloth so as to reproduce many of the peculiar characteristics of the body image on the Shroud of Turin,’ the scientists said.
