Although most Christians consider the Shroud to be the genuine burial cloth of Jesus, the results of the 1988 c-14 (carbon-14) dating has been puzzling.Firm believers in the authenticity of the Shroud were confident of a serious dating error (or incredible oversight in the c-14 dating process).Most images on this site are copyrighted and used with permission.Please do not copy images without obtaining permission of the copyright owner.ABSTRACT: In the early '80s, evidence was provided that, rather than a dye (red okra), hemoglobin was indeed responsible for the alleged blood stains of the Turin Shroud.
New scientific tests on the Shroud of Turin, which went on display Saturday in a special TV appearance introduced by the Pope, dates the cloth to ancient times, challenging earlier experiments dating it only to the Middle Ages.
The third was a multi-parametric mechanical test based on five different mechanical parameters linked to the voltage of the wire.
The machine used to examine the Shroud's fibres and test traction, allowed researchers to examine tiny fibres alongside about twenty samples of cloth dated between 3000 BC and 2000 AD.
ABSTRACT: In this work, the possible investigations and analyses of the Turin Shroud by Neutron Beam Techniques (NBT) are discussed.
The main aim of this study is to assess - in a reliable non-destructive way and in complementarity to methods already employed or under consideration for future examination campaigns - and to determine some key parameters useful to enhance current knowledge and databases on the textile properties of the Shroud.
