Description
Christianity was founded nearly two millennia ago in Palestine, and though it has shaped the course of human history, historians still cannot determine quite how it began. The resurrection of Christ is at the center of Church doctrine—after Jesus's tomb was found to be empty, he miraculously appeared to his followers at various times, entreating them to spread the gospel—yet the nature of his reappearance in these episodes is inconsistent, and was recorded long after the event. What then was the compelling evidence for his disciples? Art historian Thomas de Wesselow argues that it was the Shroud of Turin—an authentic burial cloth, misidentified as a hoax by scientists—that was their proof of Jesus's resurrection.

"Thorough, well-researched and fair-minded ... much more than just an addition to the canon of Shroud literature."—Irish Times
