Shroud of Turin
Is the Shroud of Turin the burial cloth of Jesus? Many scientists are convinced that the shroud is a medieval forgery, yet many others have presented evidence supporting the shroud’s authenticity. Over the years, we’ve printed several full-length articles on the Shroud of Turin—from the results of radiocarbon dating tests to pollen analysis—and they are all available here in this special collection. The articles below were hand-selected by Biblical Archaeology Society editors especially for members of the BAS Library.
