A computer code called MCNP is used in the nuclear industry for analysis and design of nuclear reactors, radiation detectors, radiation shielding, and criticality safety. In this study, MCNP was used for a detailed analysis of neutron absorption in the shroud. This study is based on the hypothesis that a very small fraction of neutrons in the body of Jesus were emitted from the body as it disappeared in the resurrection.

4. The Sudarium of Oviedo has been carbon dated to about 750 A.D. MCNP results indicate that a piece of cloth placed anywhere on 28% of the area of the right or left bench in the tomb would have a C14 date between 700 and 800 A.D. This would explain the C14 date for the Sudarium.
