"Perhaps the best known and most open minded of the Shroud apologists." -- Time
Attempts to determine the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin -- the shroud in which Jesus was buried -- have captivated both the scientific and religious communities for centuries. In The Blood and the Shroud, Ian Wilson challenges the 1988 claim of forgery made by scientists. He scrutinizes all the evidence, from the recent findings of human blood and DNA on the shroud to the discovery of a "bioplastic coating" of living microorganisms that indicates it to be more than 1,000 years older than previously thought. Drawing on the history of art and photography, Wilson proves that the image of Christ on the shroud could not have been created in 1350, the date of the shroud's first appearance.
