Barrie Schwortz reports that his “website has been updated and an important new article has been added to the Scientific Papers & Articles page. Co-authored by noted Shroud scholar Joseph Marino and retired NASA scientist Edwin Prior, the article is titled "Chronological History of the Evidence for the Anomalous Nature of the C-14 Sample Area of the Shroud of Turin." It provides a detailed and compelling summary of all the scientific evidence supporting the theory that an anomalous sample was used for the 1988 c-14 dating of the Shroud. See the Late Breaking Website News Page for details.

“This update also includes notice of a new Shroud documentary scheduled to air in the U.S.A. on Sunday, December 14, 2008 on the Discovery Channel, an update to the Shroud Booklist page of the site and much more.

“The Website Store page has also been updated to include a new, Framed Version of the Miniature Shroud Replica on Cotton Canvas that I have been offering for the past year. This beautifully framed version is being distributed exclusively by and eliminates the need for buyers to find a custom framer and order an expensive custom frame before displaying the replica. You can see a photograph and get detailed information on the Website Store page of the site.

“I am always looking for ways to provide added value to you, the Mailing List Subscribers, for taking time to join this list, so I am very pleased to announce an Exclusive Offer for Subscribers Only that will never be made available to the general public.  I have received a very limited number of beautifully lithographed Shroud Face postcards, printed in England for a Shroud Exhibit held earlier this year. The reverse side is blank so they can be used as postcards or notecards (or inserted into a Christmas card) and are offered in packets of 20 cards. For a photo, details and ordering information visit the Shroud of Turin Website Private Subscribers PagePlease keep this page address confidential to protect one of the benefits you derive from being a subscriber.

“This will be the last update of 2008, so I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you again for your continued participation and support. I wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and a Joyous New Year.  Watch for the next website update on January 21, 2009, which also marks the 13th anniversary of  Happy Holidays!

Warmest regards,
