The Shroud of Turin, from a photograph taken by Reecy Aresty in the Cathedral of St. John The Baptist, 1998. Believed by millions to be the cloth that covered Jesus Christ’s crucified body in his tomb, it has survived several fires, two world wars, and virtually every test known to modern science to disprove its origin and authenticity. Woven from fine linen, it measures 14 feet by 3 feet and contains faint front and back images of a man whose crucifixion wounds are uniquely consistent with those of Jesus of Nazareth. In 1898, the first photos were taken, and details indistinguishable to the naked eye were suddenly revealed as seen in the negative image shown here. Since 1578, the Shroud has been housed in a silver casket in the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Turin, Italy. It has only been displayed to the public periodically, and more than two million visitors saw it at the 2010 Exposition. The image on the Shroud of Turin has been approved by the Roman Catholic Church as part of the devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus…A portion of the proceeds of this and other cards and photographs from our collection will be donated to the Shroud Preservation Society so that future generations may experience this miraculous piece of history.
