Lesson 12

Is the Shroud of Turin a Forgery?

In this chapter your students will learn that…
■ The Shroud of Turin contains a miraculous image of a crucified man that all evidence suggests is Jesus Christ.
■ The shroud has undergone numerous scientific investigations over the years that all support the authenticity of the shroud and its image.
■ The Shroud of Turin and the Facecloth of Oviedo share numerous details that likely indicate they both were burial cloths of the same person.
■ The empirical evidence presented by the shroud strongly supports the accuracy of the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ Crucifixion and Resurrection.

Lesson Vocabulary

  • Facecloth of Oviedo
    The bloodstained cloth that, according to tradition, is the burial cloth mentioned in Scripture that was laid over the face of Christ after His Death. Analysis of blood, pollen, and other evidence on the facecloth strongly suggests that it touched the same face as the Shroud of Turin.
