Hat tip to Cazab: There is a new peer-reviewed article in Theology and Science, by Kelly P. Kearse.
- Title: “Icons, Science, and Faith: Comparative Examination of the Shroud of Turin and the Sudarium of Oviedo”
- Abstract: “The Shroud of Turin is a well-studied linen cloth bearing the image of a naked man that has been beaten, scourged, and crucified. A lesser-known, smaller cloth exists, the Sudarium of Oviedo, which contains bloodstains corresponding to the head wounds, both front and back, found on the Shroud. The Sudarium bears no facial imprint and has been proposed to represent the face-cloth (napkin) mentioned in the gospel of John (20:6–7). Here, the markings on the Shroud of Turin and the Sudarium of Oviedo are reviewed, and the possible relationship between the two cloths and their impact on faith is discussed.”
