MUST WATCH: This very important video in which, “Thomas De Wesselow, Cambridge art historian explains why, in his opinion, the image on the Shroud of Turin is unlikely to be the work of an artist or forger” is now, once again, available online to the public. It runs for an hour, an hour well worth your time:
You will need to click twice, once here and once in the Vimeo service.
I would like to see his video in YouTube where it will get more publicity and a bigger audience.
He writes in YouTube:
This part 1 series of 3 videos goes into how Jesus was buried 1st. Blood stains 1st. We cannot talk about the image formation until we 1st address the blood stains and other aspects of the image that are result of body to cloth contact.
Shroud image is the result of both body to cloth contact and another aspect of the Shroud image is a non contact image.
I want to make it clear I am not proposing that the Shroud image is a contact image only.
We will get into the discussion of what aspect of the Shroud is a non contact image in Part 2 of this series.
In the 2nd video will show how the myrrh resin applied to the cloth will convert the linen into a holographic film plate.
We will demonstrate live on film a laser beam bounced off the figure and then diffracted and the interference pattern recorded on the linen.
Part of the Shroud Image is in fact a hologram.
We will prove that beyond any reasonable doubt.
This is not just a theory I am proposing but you are going to see a up close and personal genuine demonstrated reality in front of your own eyes. "seeing is believing" and you are going to see.
Maybe for the 1st time in your entire life.
One of our goals in this video is to silence the voice of the skeptic once and for all. When we are done there will not be a single witness left to testify against Jesus of Nazareth.
The Man in the Shroud/Jesus is going to get the fair trail he did not get back in 1st Century. This time he is going to be set free along with the viewer. Permanent freedom from the spirit of fear. Spirit of joy will replace it. No one should have to live with a sick spirit of fear. We are setting out to free people of it, so they can have a chance of having a genuine, successful and happy life.
Shroud of Turin is a witnessing tool only so that one may "come to believe in a power greater then themselves that can restore the normal function of the mind and body.
One of the greatest sensations in the world that people spend millions of dollars to experience is freedom. It is positively exhilarating and spirit uplifting. You can have that sensation for free.
The truth revealed in this series of videos, will set you permanently free and it will not cost you one penny to do so, in accordance with the will of the Spirit of God. Spirit of God is not a paper and coin chaser and does not need to know your credit card number or access to your bank account.
He simply does not care how much money you have. It is something else the Spirit of God seeks from you. We suggest sending him a "knee mail" message to figure out what that is exactly.
This 56 minute EWTN video was published on YouTube May 15, 2015:
Dr. Accetta was raised Catholic attending Mass every Sunday and praying the Rosary every day. In Medical School, he stopped practicing his faith and became an agnostic. While in residence he met his wife who was a devout Evangelical Protestant. His return to faith began with an interest in the medical evidence in the Shroud of Turin. He became so interested that he opened the Shroud of Turin Center of Southern California. Though he was again a Christian, for a time he was a Fundamentalist Protestant. A study of history and theology eventually led him back Home to the Catholic Church.

“As an atheist,” says Mollie Jameson in a YouTube video, “I’ve always been amazed that people can believe in God and Jesus Christ with such little proof. When searching for a topic, I came across the Shroud of Turin….”

Dr. Ray Schneider taught a five episode course on the Shroud at Bridgewater College in Virginia. At the conference in St. Louis, I asked him to tape it and told him I would create a page on Shroud U for his course. Well it is now complete and is an excellent addition to the site….
CLICK HERE, where we read:
This course on the Shroud of Turin will give you a comprehensive understanding of the mysteries surrounding this artifact which is widely believed to be either the actual shroud which enveloped Jesus of Nazareth in the tomb or some sort of masterful forgery intended to convey that impression. Our course will cover what is known about the shroud from a multidisciplinary perspective. Without neglecting the religious viewpoint we will examine the shroud from the viewpoint of the science that has been done, from the history that has been adduced, from forensic medical science, as well as the many speculations about faint and elusive markings. We will touch on all the attempts by both those who accept authenticity and those who seek to understand how it might have been forged. At the end of our journey you will be fully equipped to make your own informed decision.
On Russ’ site you will find video links, presentation charts (as PowerPoint and PDF files) and handouts.
