Dear Nochzwei,

I don't think the correct term to define the pius devotion of the people to the shroud is really something like idolatry. I have the impression that Jesus himself knowing that he was going to be treated as a myth in the future, by the skepticals, took care to leave enough hard evidence of his existence along the last weeks of his life.

Jesus Christ , either if you believe on him as a savior or you see him just as a historic interesting figure, like a mystic or Philosopher, is man that above anything else represents an incredible passion for express love to anybody that crossed his way, his life is hymn to the happiness to be alive, and to think that life encompassed with positive attitude, faith and hope, can defeat misery, pain, disease and even death. That was the key of his personal magnetism, the Charisma that moved crowds of people around him in all his trips along the Holy land.

He is the kind of leader that prepares until the most minimum detail how he will affront death, but also how his legacy should be preserved after him. He was perfectly conscious that he would be remembered as a legend for centuries but he wanted that something remained as the material support of it.

I think that is the role of the series of relics that have his blood and also stamped his image.

No body might be accused of idolatry for just keep photos of his beloved that have already passed away, it is simply devotion to the memory of them.

Hi Dear UnidentifiedForeigner,

The presence of cotton in the shroud of Turin can be explained from the many repairs that were patiently carried out by nuns along centuries trying either to reinforce the original fabric, where it was clearly so much damaged , or to patch the areas in which it became completely burnt during the fire of the XVI century in which melted silver from the its container came over the material.

Of course cotton is an American fiber, it cant be possibly part of a textile of the middle east of such a time. Take in account that there is a verified continuity in the exhibition of this same shroud in western Europe since the XIII century, so there is no doubt it preexisted the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus.

The presence of Cotton that must be several centuries much younger than the original fabric without any doubt would decrease dramatically the apparent age in any carbon dating test practiced on it.

Thanks for join us in this interesting thread.

Really Dear Foundryman,

No scourge blood marks in the Shroud? I think you are quite wrong and besides that what are your supposed sources in to sustain seriously that claim?

Here just the abstract of a paper of the researcher Barbara Faccini of the University of Ferrara Italy that has wrote a paper just about the many scourge blood stains of the Shroud of turin.

Scourging bloodstains on the Shroud of Turin have always been grouped together without
Image processing and contrast enhancement of the 2000 Gian Durante photos allowed distinction of
three different types of scourge marks.
The first type is the most evident and it can actually be associated to the use of a Roman flagrum
similar to that usually mentioned by Shroud researchers. It is characterized by two or three brown-to
-reddish circlets (probably where the sheet has been more soaked by the blood) connected by a
lesser evident small bar.
The second type is more evanescent but more numerous. It has a wider shape and it appears to be
formed by parallel pale brown-to-reddish lines fading into the body image colour.
The third type is very faint and it is detectable only on legs (especially on their lower part) and
calves. It is a kind of fan-shaped scratch.
Processing and comparisons between the three types of scourge marks support the hypothesis that
these traces can be attributed to the use of different kinds of torture instruments.

Now, that is not all what has been published in journal papers on the topic. Here another one written
in conjunction with Dr Giulio Fanti of Ferrara University that shows that the Shroud contains evidence of 372 scourge marks in the front and the back of the body caused by the strokes of the roman flagrum.

Pls check
