The first mention of the shroud comes from a treatise (written or dictated) by Geoffroi de Charny in 1356 and who claims to have owned the cloth (see
The Book of Chivalry of Geoffroi De Charny). Later, in the 16th century, it suddenly appeared in a cathedral in Turin, Italy. (Note that thousands of
claimed Jesus relics appeared in cathedrals throughout Europe, including the wood from the cross, chalices, blood of Jesus, etc. These artifacts
proved popular and served as a prosperous commercial device which filled the money coffers of the churches.) [See The Family Jewels for some
even though the shroud is a fake its still cool that they created the image. Good stuff.
