Shroud Presentations: Science, History and Religion


No cloth in history has been so studied as the Holy Shroud.  Nor has any cloth so caught the fascination and reverence of the world. Is it the ancient burial cloth of Jesus, a Visual Gospel providing in its fabric the story of His passion and resurrection? What do modern blood and DNA studies reveal? Are there images of flowers as well as soil & pollen on the Shroud that trace its history? What do pathologists say about the wounds and the weapons that created them? These questions as well as new forensic scientific and historical evidence are discussed in this  1 hour intriguing presentation accompanied by many colorful PowerPoint slides.

About the Author: John C. Iannone is a Christian writer and lecturer who studied the Holy Shroud since 1978.  In 1998 he was invited with colleagues by  then Shroud Custodian Cardinal  Giovanni Saldarini to closely view the Shroud for an extended period, viewing the Cloth again in 2010.  He published “The Mystery of the Shroud of Turin: The Case for Authenticity” (2013) and has done  400 lectures at Churches and Universities of all denominations around the US, Canada, Rome and Turin, Italy. Having earned an M.A. at the Catholic University in Religious Studies, he did additional work at Fordham U. and Union Theological Seminary in NYC.  Mr. Iannone has done television programs on EWTN and PBS-New Orleans as well as many radio broadcasts including talks on Vatican Radio in 2010 and again as Pope Francis closed out the Shroud Exhibition in 2015. He has spoken recently at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in NYC at the invitation of Msgr. Ritchie and Cardinal Timothy Dolan.

"Dear Father Neuhaus, I read a very fascinating book on The Shroud of Turin: The Mystery of the Shroud of Turin: - The Case for Authenticity by Mr. John C. Iannone (Apr 2, 2013). The evidence presented in this book would be of great appeal to Israelis, who are fascinated both by science and also religious mysticism, and it seems that the Shroud encompasses both concepts."
Menachim Mevashir, Singvangelist ( Messianic Jewish Believers in Jesus/Yeshua).

"John… I heard many great things from Tim Lykins about your presentation at St Malachy (The Actor’s Chapel off Broadway in New York City). I would like to revisit this idea of having you speak at the Cathedral (St. Patrick’s Cathedral)… scheduled April 28, 2014.
Mario Bruschi, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, New York, NY."
