The Holy Shroud of Turin (La Sindone)

The Shroud of Turin is the famous linen cloth that many people believe once wrapped the dead body of Jesus Christ.

La Sindone (in Italian), is one of the most highly  controversial and worshipped religious icons in Italy and perhaps in all of the Christian world. The icon is an ancient linen cloth which bears the image of a crucified man. The shroud contains discernable impressions of the face, hands, feet, and torso of a man, with what are presumed to be bloodstains consistent with the wounds of crucifixion. It also has a rectangular pattern from where it was folded over the centuries, The impression on the shroud also shows a wound in the side of the man's chest, which according to the New Testament, Jesus was pierced with a lance in order to conclude he had died.

The shroud is worshipped as an image  of Jesus by those that consider it to be the authentic cloth he was wrapped in when He died and was placed in a tomb.

Existing records, show that the shroud's existence dates to the middle 1300s, appearing as though it may have been stolen from Constantinople (modern Istanbul, Turkey) during the Crusades of the 1200s. It was previously venerated in France in the late 1300s and in the early 1400s. It ended up with the Royal Savoy family who moved to Turin (Torino) Italy in 1583, where they kept it safe for four centuries. In 1983, the family gave the shroud  to Pope John Paul II and the Catholic Church as a gift.

The Holy Shroud has been subjected to many studies. Indeed it is most likely the world's most studied religious artifact. The most reliable studies date the shroud to around the 11th or 12th centuries, more than 1,000 years after Jesus Christ lived and died. Skeptics argue that the Shroud of Turin is fake, intentionally created to have the appearance of a burial cloth from the era of Jesus Christ. 
 
Those who believe that the shroud is authentic assert that the damage that occurred over the centuries, including during a 1532 fire and various  bungled restoration attempts, have corrupted the shroud to the extent that it is impossible for any scientific analysis to provide any reliable dating of the shroud. The Catholic Church has refrained from issuing a judgment on the authenticity of the shroud but encourages its worship as a means of remembering the teachings and sacrifices of Christ. The shroud remains a holy relic to the faithful, with profound spiritual importance. 

Cathedral Basilica San Giovanni Battista (Cathedral of St. John The Baptist) is the heart of the archdiocese of Turin, Italy and famous in the world for the Shroud. Also referred to as the Turin Cathedral, the shroud has been kept there for four centuries. Their website is translated into four languages (italian, english, french and russian) and it is the best source of information on the shroud. Their sheet media  breaks down the shroud into multiple sections and shows detailed information concerning the various body part impressions within the shroud.

The actual Shroud of Turin is housed in the adjacent Cathedral, or Duomo of Torino, in a climate-controlled case in a chapel built just to hold it. Because of its extremely fragile state, the shroud is not viewable to the public except during very rare public viewings.

While it is not possible to see the real Shroud of Turin, replicas and displays at the Most Holy Shroud Museum provide  excellent detailed information and explanations of the shroud and its mysteries. Several artifacts related to the Holy Shroud are on display at the museum. This display also includes historical information and the research conducted on the shroud. Also, there's an audio guide available in 5 languages and a bookshop. The Museum is in the crypt of Most Holy Shroud Church at Via San Domenico 28, Turin, Italy.

Giulio Fanti, Professor of mechanical and thermal measurements at the University of Padua, Italy who studies the Shroud, created his 3D “carbon copy” from The Shroud of Turin.

The University of Padua and Padua Hospital worked in collaboration with sculptor, Sergio Rodella. The statue was unveiled in Rome in early 2018.

“We believe that we have the precise image of what Jesus looked like on this earth,” said Professor Giulio Fanti of the University of Padua.

"This statue is the three-dimensional representation in actual size of the Man of the Shroud, created following the precise measurements taken from the cloth in which the body of Christ was wrapped after the crucifixion,” explains Giulio Fanti, teacher of mechanical and thermal measurements at the University of Padua, who studies the Shroud. Based on his measurements, the professor has created a “carbon copy” in 3D which, he claims, allows him to affirm that these are the true features of the crucified Christ.

“Therefore, we believe that we finally have the precise image of what Jesus looked like on this earth. From now on, He may no longer be depicted without taking this work into account.” The professor granted exclusive coverage of his work to the weekly periodical Chi, to which he revealed: “According to our studies, Jesus was a man of extraordinary beauty. Long-limbed, but very robust, he was nearly 5 ft. 11 in. tall, whereas the average height at the time was around 5 ft. 5 in. And he had a regal and majestic expression.”

Through the study and three-dimensional projection of the figure, Fanti was also able to count the numerous wounds on the body of the man of the Shroud:

“On the Shroud,” the professor explains, “I counted 370 wounds from the flagellation, without taking into account the wounds on his sides, which the Shroud doesn’t show because it only enveloped the back and front of the body. We can therefore hypothesize a total of at least 600 blows. In addition, the three-dimensional reconstruction has made it possible to discover that at the moment of his death, the man of the Shroud sagged down towards the right, because his right shoulder was dislocated so seriously as to injure the nerves.”  (Source:Aleteia)

Luigi Mattei, Sculptor, created a bronze statue from The Shroud of Turin, titled "The Body of the Man of the Shroud" and can be found at the Holy Shroud Museum in Turin, Italy and whose replicas are housed elsewhere in three different continents.
