We learn from the website of the Children’s Museum in Indianapolis that Barrie Schwortz will be making two presentations about the shroud on September 19:
Barrie Schwortz, one of the world’s leading experts on the Shroud of Turin, takes you behind-the- scenes to learn about the scientific investigation and history of what many Christians believe to be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ. In 1978, Schwortz served as documenting photographer for the Shroud of Turin Research Project, the first-ever, in-depth scientific examination of the cloth. Schwortz’s original images were used to create a replica of the Shroud now on display in our newest exhibit, National Geographic Sacred Journeys.
