"Recent Article on the Shroud of Turin"

 
This is a recent and well written article about the Shroud of Turin.  The only thing I would dispute is that the corner repair was needed due to fire damage of the Shroud.  The Shroud HAS been in more than one fire and has very evident scorch marks, but the corner that was radiocarbon tested was probably damaged and repaired due to wear & tear or someone snipping a souvenir.   bc
