1 SHROUD OF TURIN AND CLOTH OF OVIEDO SCIENTIFIC STUDIES
2 The most studied relic in the world with hundreds of scientists trying to solve how it was formed.The Face of the Man of the Shroud
3 Shroud Science Group International Conference The Shroud of Turin: Perspectives on a Multifaceted EnigmaAugust 14-17, 2008Ohio State University, Columbus, OhioThe conference had over 100 from many nations in attendance.

30 Crusader Geoffrey de Charny took Shroud to Lirey, France in 1353 14531578944544Fire at Chambrey in 1532 caused burn holes – mended in 1534
31 Times of London – 4/2009The location of the Shroud of Turin between 1204 during the Fourth Crusade until the middle of the 14th century has been established from documents in the Vatican Secret archives by Vatican researchers. It was in the care of the Knights Templar who used it as part of their initiation.The Vatican said the mystery of the relic’s missing years has been solved.

36 Scientists Conclusions about SHROUD of TURIN BEHOLDYOUR SAVIORReverend Dr. Robert DinegarLos Alamos – 1980Priest, PhD Chemist, STURP Member
37 CARBON-14 DATES – Summer 1988ANYONE WHO THINKS THAT THE MAN OF THE SHROUD IS JESUS – IS A FLAT-EARTHERIT IS JUST A MEDIEVAL FORGERYGerman British American
38 Linen wrappings dated to 255 AD 1750 YEARS DIFFERENCE Linen Wrappings of Egyptian mummies often give radiocarbon dates years younger than that for the body which they cover.Mummy #1770 – ManchesterCollection – a 13 year old girlBones dated to 1510 BCLinen wrappings dated to 255 AD1750 YEARS DIFFERENCE
39 “Danny the Mummy”Ibis bird sacred to the Egyptians were mummified as offering to GodsAge of linen wrappings is about 550 yearsyounger than the age of the bird.Linen AGE CAN NOT BE DETERMINED BY CARBON DATING - ERROR OF YEARS
44 Fibers from Region used for dating have a End to end splice – two endsShow different colors andDifferent amount of coating.Fibers from Region used for dating have aYellow-brownish color from gum-arabic usedin textile applications in 16th century.Fibers from other parts of shroud do nothave the coating.
45 Darn splice used in 16th century - half covered Starchedend ofDarnDarn splice used in 16th century - half coveredwith starch dates to 13th century AD, otherend claimed to date ~3 century AD.
46 Colored cotton region on a linen thread present in patch region used for carbon dating which is not present on main body ofShroud.
47 Lemon-yellow fibers showing black lignin at growth nodes Results published in 2005Thermochimica Acta byRay Rogers.Vanillin is a chemical component present in linen from flax fibers used to weave it. Vanillin disappears over time at a calculated rate. A medieval-age cloth should have 37% vanillin left. The shroud body has no Vanillin indicating that it is years old. Dead Sea scrolls have no Vanillin. Radiocarbon samples have Vanillin.
48 Two cotton fibers – one clean and one colored – The clean one Is from main body of shroud and colored one from repaired regionused for carbon dating.
50 The Shroud after 2002 Restoration What you will see at 2010 ExhibitionPatches removed and Shroud burn holes sewed to white backing cloth. Treated it with Thymol resulting in unknown amount of contamination.
51 The Sudarium Face Cloth of the Man of the Shroud?
52 Face Cloth ??John 20Then Simon Peter went into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying, and the napkin which had been on his head, not lying with the linen cloths but rolled up in a place by itself. The other disciple (John) went in and he saw and believed.
61 The Other ShroudThe SudariumExhibited 3 times a Year at Oviedo, Spain during Mass at Easter, 9/14 and 9/21.Been in Oviedo since AD 800 and left Palestine in 614 when Persians invaded.Markings match face image of Shroud of Turin. Have puncture marks from crown of thorns. Was placed over the face for trip from cross to tomb. Has same blood type and pollen as Shroud.
62 Ray Rogers Conclusions 12/2004 The Sudarium of Oviedo shows all the physical and chemical properties of a very old sample of linen. There is a finite probability that the Sudarium is related in time and location to the Shroud of Turin.
