Meridio News Article The Holy Shroud may not date back to the Middle Ages.Researchers from Catania: “All the certainties were denied” A study group of the Etnea University, coordinated by professor Benedetto Torrisi, states without fear that, on the dating of the sheet that perhaps wrapped Jesus, it is all to be redone.Torrisi in fact dampens the enthusiasm: “We cannot yet express ourselves on the actual dating, new analyzes are needed” .

«The burns of that stake pierced the original linen.

In 2002 these parts were detached and preserved separately.

The Nature magazine was perhaps also in a hurryto validate, having taken only two months. Torrisi says that, together with Tristan Casabianca , a Shroud scholar, the team had access to the data that had been kept secret: “And so after more than a year of work we have arrived at a new truth”.

If to overcome a dogma is an inalienable beginning, the discovery remains partial.

Torrisi rewinds the tape: “There are two focal dates in the history of the Shroud: 1988 , when the prestigious scientific journal Nature endorsed that it could date back to the years between 12 ; and , the date on which that certainty was publicly overturned in an irrefutable manner ».
