imageChristopher Macfarlane at The Protest Station writes a posting called Thank Shroud Almighty:

In case you don’t know what the Shroud of Turin is, it is allegedly the burial cloth in which Jesus was wrapped. I’ve seen documentaries about it, and at least from what I’ve seen, it is definitely an interesting artifact that I’m not entirely convinced should be thrown out.

Actually, it is part of a full article dealing with de Wesselow’s book. I recommend reading it.
