This book, Religion and the Senses in Early Modern Europe (Intersections) by Wietse De Boer and Christine Gottler (Oct 2012), looks like it might be fascinating as it explores, with regards to the Shroud of Turin, attitudes and beliefs about the shroud in the late middle ages. Two contiguous snippets from separate pages follow. The Emanuele Tesauro mentioned would be the historian and writer from Turin writing in the late 1600s.
