Following the recent requests to "peer review" the recent results on the Turin Shroud that show the age of this Relic compatible with the time of Jesus Christ and that show why the 1988 radiocarbon dating is not reliable;

and following the request to have a confirmation of the origin and of the traceability of the samples used to reach this conclusion,

Giulio Fanti is happy to offer this possibility if a proper committee, will be formed including experts coming from the Vatican and from the Pontificia Accademia delle Scienze.

However the samples in question will not go out of Fanti’s office.

I certainly want to see scientific experts from secular academic or scientific institutions in the spirit of what John Farrell suggested in Forbes Magazine.
