Historian Juliet Faith, who organized the exhibit, is quoted as saying:
I am absolutely delighted and most grateful that the Dean and Chapter have agreed to hosting this exhibition, which will give people an insight into probably the most remarkable artefact of all time.
The shroud is a 14ft long piece of bloodstained linen cloth, bearing the shadowy imprint both front and back, of a bearded, crucified man, laid out in death.
It is without doubt the most studied artefact on the planet, but still science cannot tell us how it came to be.
