Nice story from Amy Reid in Surrey Now:
Delta will soon be housing the Man of the Shroud exhibit, which will centre on the art, history and scientific aspects of the Shroud of Turin.
Some believe the shroud to be the authentic burial cloth of Jesus.
When the exhibit, sponsored by the Vancouver Shroud Association, was first displayed in 2004 at the Church of the Good Shepherd in White Rock, it had more than 10,000 visitors during the eight-day event.
And at that exhibit, they didn’t have Barrie Schwortz, an international U.S. shroud scholar.
Schwortz will be at the event in Delta, running from March 26 to 31 at Immaculate Conception Church, providing live, interactive presentations.
. . .
"All of this evidence is there and my role is simply to say, look, here’s the scientific evidence," he said.
Schwortz said it’s important to note that he doesn’t have a religious bias in the matter, as he comes from a Jewish background.
