Interview with Barrie Schwortz in Intrepid
Scotty Roberts for Intrepid magazine writes in an article, When Flesh Meets Fabric: The Shroud of Turin:
. . . It is, in fact, the single most studied artifact in human history, and we know more about it today than we ever have before. And yet, the controversy still rages.
Roberts conducts an interview with Barrie Schwortz that is actually pretty good for what for seems to be a fringe-world publication for unexplained phenomena, UFO’s, conspiracy, etc.:
Scotty: What I know about the Shroud could fill a thimble. You represent, to me, the quintessential expert on the Shroud, having spent 33 years researching it’s authenticity.
Barrie: I am a professional photographer going on my 40th year. I started with a small studio in Santa Barbrara back in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. In 1976 I was asked to participate as a consultant on a photo imaging project for Los Alamos Laboratories. That project lasted about seven months, and a few months after that I got a call from the guy I had worked with on the Los Alamos project. He asked me, “Barrie, what do you know about the Shroud of Turin?” The very first thing I said was, “But Don, I’m Jewish.” He reminded me that he, too, was Jewish.
It is worth reading. It’s informative. Barrie, as always, articulates the a well reasoned, scientifically objective argument in favor of authenticity.
