The Shroud of Turin & The Shroud of Oviedo, Starting March 4
& Shroud Encounter: Exploring the Mystery of the Shroud of Turin, March 7, 8
From the Benedictine University Center for Lifelong Learning we learn of a class:
The Shroud of Turin & The Shroud of Oviedo. The authenticity of the Shroud of Turin has been questioned for a variety of reasons. The Shroud of Oviedo is claimed to be the cloth wrapped around the head of Jesus Christ after his death. This course will examine the evidence both supporting and challenging their authenticity and discuss what is known about their journey to Europe.
