New scientific tests on the Shroud of Turin, which went on display Saturday in a special TV appearance introduced by the Pope, dates the cloth to ancient times, challenging earlier experiments dating it only to the Middle Ages. Pope Francis sent a special video message to the televised event in the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, Italy, which coincided with Holy Saturday, when Catholics mark the period between Christ's crucifixion on Good Friday and his resurrection on Easter Sunday. The Vatican, tiptoeing carefully, has never claimed that the foot linen cloth was, as some believers claim, used to cover Christ after he was taken from the cross 2, years ago.

New test dates Shroud of Turin to era of Christ
By Sarah Knapton , Science Correspondent. The Turin Shroud may not be a medieval forgery after all, after scientists discovered it could date from the time of Christ. The shroud, which is purported to be the burial cloth of Jesus - showing his face and body after the crucifixion - has intrigued scholars and Christians alike.
The Shroud of Turin, a linen cloth that tradition associates with the crucifixion and burial of . The proposed changes to the Turin protocol sparked another heated debate among scientists, and the sampling procedure was postponed. On April.

Radiocarbon dating of the Shroud of Turin
Hat tip to Joe Marino for spotting this. The following was published yesterday, March 22, , in Archaeometry, a Wiley publication.
The Turin Shroud is a fake. In the latest, but almost certainly not final instalment, they have used modern forensic techniques to show that apparent blood spatters on the shroud could only have been produced by someone moving to adopt different poses — rather than lying still, in the manner of a dead and yet to be resurrected Messiah. Forensic scientist Dr Matteo Borrini of Liverpool John Moores University and Luigi Garlaschelli of the University of Pavia used a living volunteer and real and synthetic blood to try to simulate possible ways that the apparent bloodstains could have got onto the shroud. This could be consistent with someone who had been crucified with their arms held in a Y shape. Unfortunately for shroud believers, however, the forearm blood stains would require the dead body to have been wrapped in the shroud with their arms in a different position — held almost vertically above their head, rather than at an angle of 45 degrees. The researchers, whose findings have been published in the J ournal of Forensic Sciences , formed the opinion that the supposed blood spatters seem to have fallen vertically and almost randomly from someone who might well have been standing over the cloth, rather than lying in it. The shroud, bearing what looked like the double image of a man who had been crucified, is now in the royal chapel of the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin.
