The Pan American Sindonology, along with the Metropolitan Municipality of Lima, opened the exhibition "The Shroud: The Impossible image" in the Historic Center of Lima.
Curated by Erwin Scheuch, CEO of CPS and investigation of Rafael de la Piedra, Director of Scientific Research of the CPS, the exhibition of "the impossible image" comprises a series of infographics on studies of the Shroud and a collection replicas of objects or tools used to torture the man of the Shroud. In the infographics some hypotheses that attempt to explain how awesome image on fabric formed was exposed. Finally, you can see a photographic replica to the original size of the fabric.
On the Shroud of Turin, as it is also known to The Shroud the Sainte, Erwin Scheuch says, "is the most studied of the world relic. He is currently in an urn in the Chapel of the Holy Shroud, inside the Cathedral of Turin, a city in northern Italy. Here it has been in the past four centuries. Therefore it can be said that Turin is the city of the Shroud, the city of the Shroud ".
Meanwhile, Rafael de la Piedra, explained that "the Shroud is a linen cloth, woven herringbone. We know it’s a type of fabric that was used in Jesus’ time in the East, while in Europe it was not used before the fifteenth century. In terms of measures, after it was restored in 2002 by removing the liners restricting the full extent of the fabric and will eliminate some wrinkles, the Shroud measured 4.42 meters long by 1.13 wide, about ".
The invitation to visit the exhibition has been extended to all persons interested in various scientific disciplines, to observe and draw their own conclusions. While there can be no absolute certainty about the identity of the man of the Shroud, all investigations and studies indicate that this is a man of the times and similar features to Jesus of Nazareth and the image on the cloth was left by a inexplicable to science physical process, why not been able to reproduce. This process would be the resurrection, which would leave physical traces.
The exhibition will be at the House of Thirteen Doors from Tuesday March 24 to April 25 as part of the celebration of Holy Week and Easter. Hours are Monday through Saturday from 10:00 to 18:00 hrs. Admission is free.
