IV Symposium Scientifique
International du CIELT

April 25-26, 2002
Paris, France

On April 25th and 26th, 2002, the International Center for the Study of the Shroud of Turin (CIELT), the largest Shroud study organization in France, sponsored their fourth major symposium. Many researchers from around the world attended the event and presented papers and abstracts regarding current and future Shroud studies. Several of these are now reprinted on this website and we plan to include more in the future. We also apologize for not providing a complete schedule and list of speakers, along with the titles of their papers as we normally do, but we do not have that information available at this moment in time and do not want to delay getting the page online. If anyone can provide us with that information, it would be sincerely appreciated.
