Paper Chase: Jones republishes Jackson’s, "An Unconventional Hypothesis to Explain all Image Characteristics Found on the Shroud Image"

imageStephen E. Jones, with permission from John Jackson, has republished John’s full paper, An Unconventional Hypothesis to Explain all Image Characteristics Found on the Shroud Image. That is a great service to all of us because the paper isn’t online and is hard to find. Jones includes his own preface, which reads in part:

"Cloth Collapse theory" to explain the origin of the Shroud’s image is, in my opinion, one of the most important thing ever written about the Shroud of Turin. This is because it claims to, and I agree that it does, "explain all image characteristics found on the shroud image." Yet, it has never been published online and can only be found in a comparatively obscure, out-of-print book: Berard, A., ed., 1991, "History, Science, Theology and the Shroud," Symposium Proceedings, St. Louis Missouri, June 22-23, 1991, The Man in the Shroud Committee of Amarillo, Texas: Amarillo TX. However, you can see Dr. Jackson’s presentation of his theory at the St. Louis Symposium in the video, "What is Missing? "
