Mandylion of Edessa Images

May 16, 2014

imageSr. Ann sends along a link on Pinterest to: 

A collection of photo images related to the "Mandylion of Edessa", a semi-legendary relic of Christianity, a square or rectangular piece of cloth bearing the image of the face of Jesus Christ, which first appeared in the city of Edessa in the 6th century. Many believe that this relic and the face on the Shroud of Turin are one and the same.

I count 29 different images, all with captions and most with extended captions. Interesting. It should be a useful reference.

Pinterest seems interesting. I tried a search with “Mandylion of Edessa” and got similar, but different, results. It is different than Google Images.

    Awesome! Now we have comparative and empirical evidence that the Mandylion(s) are Shroud copies and Shroud cover-ups!

    Unfortunately many of the captions seem to have little bearing on the specific image but merely reiterate generalities concerning the mandylion legends, theories that it may have been the same object as the TS, etc. It would have been better to have included text identifying each image, as to its location, origin, age and other particulars.
