Probably around forty years ago — yes, I’m that incredibly old — I read a fair amount about the famous Shroud of Turin.  Since then, unfortunately, not so much.

 

It’s still a very interesting topic, though.  And, conceivably, a momentous one.

 

I’m grateful to Matthew Wheeler for calling this item to my attention:

It seems that I may have to start reading more seriously about sindonology again.
