The Discovery Channel opens up what many–including the Vatican–had taken to be a settled question, namely whether the famous Shroud of Turin is truly the burial cloth of Jesus. “Unwrapping the Shroud: New Evidence,” airs Sunday (today), Dec. 14, at 10pm Eastern time.
The show’s promo material says this: “The Shroud of Turin was believed to be the burial cloth of Jesus. But in 1988, radiocarbon dating concluded it was a medieval hoax. New scientific evidence poses the first substantive challenge-reopening debate about the Shroud’s authenticity.”
I haven’t seen the piece yet, so I’ll be as keen to watch as anyone else. The shroud fascinates me, as many others.
Oh, and if you look closely, and if they used any of my voicebites, you may be able to catch a glimpse of yours truly “pontificating” on the topic.
