On June 21st, 1997 the Shroud of Turin Center opened at Mary Mother of the Church Abbey in Richmond, Virginia.

Historical research focuses on manuscripts and art of the first thousand years after the crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus, scientific research on the problem of image formation and archaeological research on the late second-Temple period.

It also includes some of the historic, early photographs of the Shroud, including the original photographs made by Secondo Pia in 1898 and Giuseppe Enrie in 1931.
