Reposted: NASA scientist to give talk on the Shroud of Turin at Wells Anglican Cathedral this Easter
If you will be in England during the last half of April, you will want to make it to Somerset (3 hours east of London) to see The Mystery of the Shroud – an Exhibition for Easter, to be held in the Chapter House at Wells Anglican Cathedral from April 16 to 28. Former NASA scientist Ed Prior will be giving two talks in the Wells Museum. The first will be on Joseph of Arimathea, on April 20, and on second on the Shroud of Turin on April 22.
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.
