E88: The Shroud of Turin

December 2, 2019

The Shroud of Turin is a piece of linen cloth bearing the image of a bearded man resembling the traditional Catholic image of Jesus Christ. The Shroud is thought by many to be the actual burial linen of Jesus of Nazareth, having been left behind by Jesus after the Resurrection. In the years since its discovery, the Turin Shroud has consistently generated controversy and heated debates between the religious and secular scientific communities. Over the years, the Shroud has been proven to be both a medieval era forgery and a genuine 2,000 length of linen - it is so controversial that even the Catholic Church is hesitant to accept its legitimacy.

In this episode of Big, If True, Matt and Kayla discuss the last days of Jesus Christ, the history of the Shroud of Turin, and the many scientific tests that have proven and disproven its legitimacy.
