The Shroud of Turin, the cloth Jesus was wrapped in after he died on the cross, is an extremely important religious article for Catholics throughout the world. This detailed artifact displays an image of a bloody body, said to be the body of Christ at his resurrection. Scientists now believe they have replicated the shroud with items available during the 14th century, and say that the original was in fact created by people other than Christ. Throughout the years the shroud has encountered numerous damaging events, such as fires, which have altered its original appearance. Whether or not this piece of history is authentic will forever be debated. The Catholic Church has yet to comment on its historical accuracy. “Those who believe in it will continue to believe,” says Luigi Garlaschelli, a professor at the University of Pavia who participated in the replication. The disagreement of authenticity remains, and will continue due to many people’s renowned faith, or lack of, in the power of Christ.
