About this title

Synopsis:

Two decades after radiocarbon dating declared the Turin Shroud a mediaeval fake, brand-new historical discoveries strongly suggest that this famous cloth, with its extraordinary photographic imprint, is genuinely Christ's shroud after all.

In 1978 in his international bestseller The Turin Shroud Ian Wilson ignited worldwide public debate with his compelling case endorsing the shroud's authenticity. Now, 30 years later, he has completely rewritten and updated his earlier book to provide fresh evidence to support his original argument. Shroud boldly challenges the current post-radiocarbon dating view - that it is a fake. By arguing his case brilliantly and provocatively, Ian Wilson once more throws the matter into the public arena for further debate and controversy.

Review:

"The godfather of the bestselling genre of historical quests that seek for the 'truth' behind ancient myths and faiths." (The Independent)

"Really a completely new book, which I had not quite anticipated. The updated content [and] the enhanced pictorial program (including the many colour plates) ... greatly add to its impact." (Professor John Beldon Scott)

"In 1978 Ian Wilson first put forward the idea that the Shroud was the same as the Mandylion of Edessa...The [latest] evidence presented...is such that the burden of proof is now on those who think that the two relics are not related... This would take the Shroud back to the seventh century at least..." (John Ray TLS)
