Saint Mark’s Church will present the highly acclaimed 90-minute multi-media presentation "Shroud Encounter" at 3 p.m. on Sept. 18 at the church, located at 54 Kuhn Road in Rochester.
Shroud Encounter is a fast moving, big-screen experience using over 180 images covering all aspects of Shroud research.
Featured in the presentation will be Russ Breault, a dynamic speaker who has been featured in several documentaries seen on History Channel and Discovery Channel. He has presented at numerous colleges and universities including Duke, West Point, and Penn State.
The Shroud of Turin is the most analyzed artifact in the world yet remains a mystery. The 14-foot long linen cloth that has been in Turin, Italy, for over 400 years and bears the faint front and back image of a 5 foot 10 inch bearded, crucified man with apparent wounds and bloodstains that match the crucifixion account as recorded in the Bible. Millions of people over the centuries have believed it to be the actual burial shroud of Jesus. The historical trail can be traced through Italy, France, Asia Minor (Turkey) and may have originated in Israel according to botanical evidence.
A team of 24 scientists in 1981 concluded it was not the work of an artist. They found no visible trace of paint, pigment, dye or other artistic substances on the cloth. Skeptics have mounted numerous attempts to show how a medieval artist could have produced the image but all have been inadequate to fully explain how the mysterious image was formed.
Shroud Encounter will cover all aspects of the history, science, art and theories of how the image may have been formed.
