The Shroud of Turin is one of the most famous relics in the world. Scrutinized by scientists and studied by debunkers, it is also honoured by countless faithful devoted to the mysterious image of a crucified man that appears on the cloth. In this lavishly illustrated book, best-selling author Paul Badde sets out on a journey through Europe and the Holy Land as he traces the rich history of the Shroud. With the investigative skills of a seasoned journalist, Paul Badde uncovers many of the mysteries surrounding the Shroud and also researches another relic honoured as a burial cloth of Christ--the Veil of Manoppello, which bears the image of the Holy Face. Drawing upon his years in Jerusalem and his many visits to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Badde gives a riveting account of the discovery of Christ's countenance by Peter and John in the dawn of the first Easter. Badde powerfully presents the case that their awe and wonder at the sight of the True Icon needs to be rediscovered in our own time.
