The Shroud of Turin in Perspective

Art historian, Davor Aslanovski writes Just some food for thought possibly appropriate for the Feast of St Luke, which was yesterday:

[W]hen one remembers that the original icon is not what was allegedly painted by Saint Luke, nor even what is preserved on the Shroud of Turin, but the human being itself, which was made in the image of God; and when one thinks of how imperfect that being is, and yet what great things it is capable of, then the technical imperfection of those images is hardly curious at all. It is just another reminder of the unfinishedness of creation, of God’s love for the humble, and of how often the stone that the builders reject becomes the chief cornerstone.
