(THE LIVING SHROUD)by Emanuela and Maurizio Marinelli
Extraordinary relic of Christ, or clever forgery of the Middle Ages? Down the years scientists from all over the world have to compete with the challenge launched by a mysterious image imprinted on the Shroud - a burial wrapping sheet preserved in Turin for over four centuries. The microscope rummaged among the folds of its fabric, and dusty manuscripts were reopened.
What conclusions were arrived at?
What questions remain unanswered?
Abounding in an impressive documentation and a vast iconographic apparatus (about 500 pages, 400 images, 17 minutes of audio and 15 minutes of video), this CD-ROM ranges in all the areas of knowledge connected to the enigma of this unique object in the world, and offers the possibility to "navigate" into and explore the mystery of the Shroud. The routes to follow are marked according to four different approaches of study.
This CD-ROM is a precious aid for the double appointment with the next Exhibitions in 1998 and in 2000; the authors quoted both favourable and unfavourable to authenticity research results with the aim to supply to the "navigator" with all the elements to get the hang of the matter.
Whatever the opinion, this mystery is definitely fascinating.
