My hypothesized link between the Shroud of Turin and the Templar executions is reinforced – via the Lirey badge and its reverse-side diamond trellis.

Here’s the reverse side  (1) of the Lirey Pilgrim’s badge, the front side  (2) showing  a man (not obviously Christ-like)  in Turin Shroud configuration).

Now look at this picture of the Templars being prepared for slow-roasting:

Jacques de Molay, last Grand Master, Knights Templar,1309.

Now look at this picture of St. Lawrence of Rome next to the  gridiron,  the one  on which he was slow-roasted. Note the diamond trellis (and compare with the Lirey badge above – first picture).

Note the up-market iron grid in the picture, with its diamond trellis.

 

Then look at the man on the Lirey badge: note the coiled rope (or chain) like objects which  Ian Wilson describes as blood belt – an NT-friendly narrative (but true?).

Lirey pilgrim's badge, depicting the Man on the TS (left) and Arthur Forgeais drawing right. Note the unexpected coil-like features (red arrows) which Ian Wilson interprested as a "blood belt" from a side wound with lance, as per NT account of Christ's crucifixion, which I interpreted in 2012 as a chain used to secure a victim for burning at the stake. That opinion is now revised in the light of the depictions of the martyrdom of St.Lawrence of Rome.

Then look at the roasting of the naked hands-over-groin area St.Lawrence of his gridiron (AD 258, reign of Emperor Valerian):

Does not the nudity and position of the hands put you in mind of something? But this is the martyrdom of St.Lawrence of Rome  in 258 – by slow-roasting on a grill. Now look at the reverse side of the Lirey badge. What do you see? Then look at the Turin Shroud. Sheer coincidence? Maybe...

Apols for repetition

Am I the only one to see connections here?

Like – the man on the TS was a barbecued Knight Templar, that his manner of execution was inspired by that of St.Lawrence, that maybe a life-sized crucifix of Christ was used to make a thermal imprint as proxy for the dead Templar, that it was then a simple matter to suggest that the man shown on the TS was not a Templar, was not St.Lawrence but the real Jesus of Nazareth in his real burial shroud?
