The 1988 radiocarbon test continues to be the hottest issue among many Shroud watchers.Meacham also has unkind words, as many researchers do, for the Shroud’s 2002 restoration (removal of old patches, charred material, backing cloth, and smoothing of wrinkles) that probably destroyed subtle historical data.This is a book best suited for the more serious Shroud reader.Purportedly, it is the burial shroud that Jesus was wrapped in before He was placed in the tomb provided by Joseph of Arimathea.There is strong, even overwhelming, scientific evidence that the Shroud is genuine.The technique wove in a piece of cotton and the cotton was then dyed to match the color of the surrounding linen.This is possible because linen is highly resistant to dye but cotton is not.What is unique about the Shroud is that it contains the image of a crucified man in great detail, in negative format, i.e., like a photographic negative.No one has been able to explain how the image was made.His conclusion that the Shroud of Turin “is the very piece of linen described in the biblical accounts as being used to enfold the body of Christ”(1) was surprisingly gutsy for a secular journal with a largely secular audience.It also brought him an invitation to participate in the C14 planning occurring in the mid 1980s.
