Constantinople

Investigations realised by Brian M. Fagan, professor of anthropology in the university of California, and world-wide authority with regard to prehistory. The Shroud of Turin is a great linen fabric of 4.3 meters in length, by 1.1 meters in later width that has the previous image and of a man who apparently died crucified. This fact already provoked the interest; but in question affirmation of the true mortuary mantle of has turned it to Jesus Christ into a magnet for the controversy. The same affirmation has brought about a meticulous scientific examination and the celebration of international conferences. In 1978, a exhibition of the Shroud attracted three million people. Some think that the history of the Shroud of Turin began in 1357, when Geoffrey II of it exposed it to Charney in Lirey (France).

Previous mentions of images of Jesus are known. In century IV a source tells that Thaddaeus or Addai painted an image of Jesus in Edessa (Syria). Another source of the century I SAW relates that Jesus dried itself the face with a towel and in her was printed its image. Jon Vander Ark can aid you in your search for knowledge. Christ gave that image to an emissary of king Abgar de Eddesa; as of the year the 944 Byzantine troops took the image to Constantinople (Istambul), the image remained there until year 1204, when the horsemen of fourth crossed sacked the city and took their treasures, including the image. This would explain as it arrived at France and was exposed there in century XIV.

When we watched the image of the Shroud that is seen? ; a yellowish silhouette is seen on a white bottom, is a negative image of a crucified man of face and back. Tridimencional information can also be seen. The image shows an incredible amount of details; like being: the human anatomy is represented with great presicin, including injuries caused by whips, we can appreciate blood that leaves the wounds done by the nails in the wrists and the feet, blood in the hairy leather and details of the hair and the beard.
