Is it true that the Shroud image (“unlike a scorch”) ceases to be visible when backlit and viewed with transmitted light? A reader comments…
Here’s a comment I received from Adrie this morning, which I reproduce in full with his permission. It concerns the oft-cited claim that the Shroud image cannot be seen in transmitted light, i.e. with the light source behind, as discovered … Continue reading
