Final posting in previous stodgy site format: “Shroud of Turin – and now for a retrospective look at the boring old (systematic) science”
Update: Aug 3, late evening, UK time: Oops. The new title and format of this site, now into its 5th year, has been picked up by Google under a (shroud of turin) search sooner than expected – approx 14 hours! … Continue reading
What happened to make Geoffroy de Charny’s humble chapel the first undisputed mid-14th century home of the Turin Shroud? A second ransom demand?
WHY DID GEOFFROY DE CHARNY CHANGE HIS MIND? DOROTHY CRISPINO Crusaders, Templars, knights and knaves have been stalked by sleuths intent on identifying the man who carried the Holy Shroud away from Constantinople in 1204 and—presumably but not necessarily—took it … Continue reading
Shroud of Turin: performance characteristics of a simple uv lamp, chosen to check out claims that are dismissive of thermal imprinting mechanisms (Part 1 of 3).
OK, so the 1981 STURP summary did not describe the enigmatic image of the Man on the Turin Shroud as a “scorch”. The term “scorch” appeared nowhere, and this investigator no longer uses that term anyway, for reasons that … Continue reading
Might flour-power have been used create the enigmatic “Shroud” of Turin body image? A retired FMBRA flour scientist says …
Back in January 2012 this investigator set out to model the Shroud of Turin body image, using known scientific principles. (He thinks he may have succeeded!) It was in response to the claim by Paolo Di Lazzaro and his … Continue reading
Is the Shroud of Turin really just 18 years short of its 2000th birthday? SEE THIS BLOG FOR A DAILY ACERBIC OVERVIEW OF CURRENT WRANGLING (currently 2015, Week 33)
This posting rep0rts what this blogger/retired science bod considers to be significant progress in modelling the “Shroud” image, so as to reproduce more of its allegedly ‘iconic’ and/or “unique” properties (negative image, superficiality, 3D properties, fuzzy border, possibly even some … Continue reading
Here’s an updated version of my ‘iconoplastic’ modelling of that Turin so-called “Shroud” (probably a misnomer).
It attempts to reprise what almost certainly began life as an ingenious medieval thought experiment focused on a certain blank sheet – before receiving and enveloping the body from the Cross – Joseph of Arimathea’s linen. It in turn took … Continue reading
The Shroud of Turin: probably not miraculous, just a simulated sweat imprint – a triumph of medieval joined-up thinking.
Modelling the Shroud image: from heated brass crucifix (left) to 3D-enhanced light/dark reversed scorch image (right). Not 100% there yet, but arguably making progress. The first recorded appearance of the TS was in the tiny French hamlet of Lirey, south … Continue reading
