Jennifer Wentz reports in The Evening Sun of Hanover, Pennsylvania, that Shroud of Turin experts prepare visit to Hanover area. Hanover is a town about 15 minutes east of Gettysburg:
A 42-square-foot piece of linen displayed in a cathedral in northern Italy bears the image of a man.
Is that man Jesus of Nazareth? That’s a question historians, theologians and scientists have debated for centuries.
In 1978, John Jackson led an in-depth study of the cloth, known today as the Shroud of Turin. His wife, Rebecca, has also devoted her life to its study.
These two scientists will come to Conewago Township on Oct. 18 to discuss their findings as part of a two-day seminar organized by Hanover residents Jess and Luz Socrates. [ . . . ]
