History's Mysteries: The Shroud of Turin

The Shroud of Turin

Sometimes referred to as the burial shroud of Jesus, the Shroud of Turin is said to hold the image of a man who is said to have died from crucifixion.
Carbon dating tests suggest it comes from the middle-ages, but many believers say the shroud is in-corrupt, and therefore carbon dating that measures decay cannot accurately measure the age of the Shroud.
The Shroud is currently at the Cathedral of St John the Baptist in Turin, Italy.
As of yet, no-one has been able to explain how the image was created on the shroud.

It was once known as the “Image of Edessa” and reported since the 4th century, there is also another cloth named the “Sudarium” (John 20:7) which is from Biblical times and said to have covered the head of Jesus in the tomb.

In a study conducted by Avinoam Danin, a researcher at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, it was concluded that the two cloths covered the same head at two distinct, but close moments of time.
Interestingly, the Sudarium cloth also has blood stains that are blood-type AB
