For the first time after its restoration in 2020, the Holy Shroud will once again be on display in the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin from April 10 to May 23, 2010
The shroud was only displayed 4 times in the 20th century and it will not be again on display until the year of 2025, 15 years from now.
The Shroud of Turin (or Turin Shroud) is a linen cloth bearing the image of a man who appears to have suffered physical trauma in a manner consistent with crucifixion. It is kept in the royal chapel of the Cathedral of Turin, Italy. The origins of the shroud and its image are the subject of intense debate among scientists, theologians, historians and researchers.
Believers contend that the shroud is the cloth placed on the body of Jesus Christ at the time of his burial, and that the face image is the face of Jesus. Non-believers claim contend that the artifact postdates the Crucifixion of Jesus by more than a millennium.
The shroud exhibition is not only a pilgrimage opportunity but also a chance to visit Italy’s less know region of Piedmont and the city of Torino
Piedmont this mountainous northern region of Italy at the borders of France and Switzerland renowned for its rugged castles, unique northern cuisine especially its tasty truffles as well as world-class vineyards. It is the ancient dominion of the Savoys, the ill-fated royal family who ruled Italy from the Unification in 1870 until abdication in 1946. With its many picturesque lakes and hills, many more than you can find in celebrated Tuscany, Piedmont can be a real surprise for visitors.
