It may be Historically or Archaelogically very interesting, but I don't see really what is the connection of this with any personal respect or
admiration to a figure, or faith or religious belief?
The Shroud of Turin is not an essential element to support a Religion, or a philosophical current, Not at all.
Even without it No body whatsoever is going to question with a solid base that Christ was not the magnificent religious leader than the JudeoChristian
accounts claim or the Roman Empire honored after Emperor Constantine.
Christ is still a preeminent figure that define in a unique way the western Civilization, with his burial cloth present in our time or Not.
There were entire cultural, artistic, arquitectonic and even Engineering projects inspired in his legacy. The Ship that put in contact first time the
Renaissant Europe with the Americas was called Sta. Maria after his mother name.
Cities, Principalities, Kingdoms and empires were founded over a legacy of ethical and philosophical principles He originated. His thoughts and ideas
have an incredible important influence in Education, psychology, music and Arts, humanism, Laws, even in to shape the progress of Science for
centuries in the west.
How many cities in the world were named after him?
There are even states called after him, like the Republic of El Salvador, The Holy See or the Republic of Mt. Athos.
His physical image carved in tons of solid stone dominates the high Andes between Chile an Argentina, the western Andes over the Cauca's Valley of
Colombia, the Bay of Rio de Janeiro, the valley of Guanajuato in Mexico or the National Panteon of Spain, and of course his painted image crowns the
magnificent Cathedrals of St Paul in London, St Peter in Rome, Notredame in Paria, Haggia Sophia in Istanbul or St Basili on Moscow.
Christ does Not need the Shroud to improve his prestige at all, He does Not need to prove nothing at this point of History, his glory is full,
nothing what so ever to be admired, trusted or respected. Not even with a Shroud miracolously stamped or preserved, perhaps 20 centuries ago He needed
that to convince, but definitively Not now.
We are ,in our limited way to grasp things, the ones that perhaps may gain something with its scientific study to understand better the real
dimension of his person, the so complex nature of this unique and fascinating personality, personal magnetism, wisdom and so famous attributes, that
make him singular in History.
Your comment sounds really silly, completly ignorant of the person you are pointless trying to undermine or demerit.
With all respect that statement is really absurd, who says that Napoleon was Great due to the sword he used or his hat instead of his contribution to
universalization of civil rights or Military strategies?
Who claims that Socrates was so due to his nice tunic, instead of his Philosophical legacy?, or
That Christopher Columbus thanks to his fashioned Jacket, and Not for his tenacity to communicate civilizations?
Who cares about the curled wig that Johann Sebastian Bach used? It was his Angelic music what is important.
what are you talking about? Are you living on a cloud or what?
You are living in a Nebula if you think my admiration, trust or faith in Christ depends exclusively on this. He exceeds in credentials to be
