About

Real or Fake? The Shroud of Turin is "believed" to be the burial cloth of Jesus after his crucifixion. This 14-foot piece of ancient cloth has a mysterious 3D image wrapped around the front and back of a man.  Apart from the image there are blood stains, water stains, and burn marks. 

For hundreds of years people have been studying this relic to determine how it was created and if it is real. In the last 15 years, huge technological advances have allowed experts to develop some incredible theories on how it might have been created. Mixing science, art, history, faith, and medicine, the Shroud of Turin is the most studied relic in the history of the world.  For many it is a powerful intellectual exercise on history and science, while for others it is a deeply moving spiritual experience.

We need your help to launch 4 new initiatives, to be completed over the next 90 days:

1. The Shroud Center is creating a full-size mobile scientific and artistic exhibit to bring the “expansive story” to schools, churches, and community organizations.

Risks and challenges

The Shroud Center has been existence since 1996, founded by August Accetta M.D. The new scientific findings and research that is being done around the world is creating new interest in the shroud. The Southern California Shroud Center has developed a board of advisors who have spent their life devoted to this controversial topic. As technology and access to the facts and data advances, so does our ability to determine the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin. The actual shroud is located in Turin, Italy and will not be publicly displayed until 2025.
