Shroud of Turin

The Shroud of Turin is a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man, a man that millions believe to be Jesus Christ. The Villanova University Art Gallery has invited a speaker who has spent 30 years studying the Shroud in all its aspects. He will display a life-size replica of the Shroud.

Massimo Paris, of Broomall, PA, was born and raised in Rome, Italy. For many years, Mr. Paris has been accumulating research on the Shroud from multiple sources that include books, articles, videos, lectures, conferences, and visits to museums, churches and historical sites. He has personally seen the Shroud during the exhibition in 2000.

Massimo is a friend of Emanuela Marinelli, a renowned Shroud scholar from Italy who has authored 18 books on the subject. He also knew the late Dr. Carlo Goldini, the Italian hematologist who matched the blood types from both the Sudarium of Oviedo (the cloth placed of the head and face of the crucified Jesus) and the Shroud. In 2014, he met Dr. John Jackson, organizer and team leader of the Shroud of Turin Project, which examined the Shroud for 120 hours throughout 5 days in 1978. After the lecture, Father Richard Cannuli will present a selection of

Traditional relics of the Passion for veneration.
