Museum of Shroud in Turin

 

Museo della Sacra Sindone 

 

The Shroud is one of the most important relics in Christian tradition. The shroud (from the Greek “sheet”) is said to be the very one used on the body of Christ when he was buried and then found by the Apostles in the empty sepulchre after his resurrection. Tests performed on the fabric were unable to guarantee its authenticity nor to explain the presence of the image of a man imprinted on the fabric, since there is no evidence of any ink or paint, leaving the mystery surrounding the item more or less unsolved. The Museum of the Shroud was set up in the crypt of the church of the holy Shroud (chiesa del SS. Sudario), on which restoration work was completed in 1998. In addition to the Holy Shroud, the museum guards religious items, including the Sixteenth century silver and hard stone reliquary which contained the Shroud up until 1998. Artistic contributions and the accounts of the scientific enquiry complete the visit, providing the most exhaustive information about the Shroud.
