The Blood and the Shroud : New Light on the Turin Shroud Mystery
In the light of the carbon dating process carried out in 1988, this book aims to interpret the Turin Shroud anew. It shows that carbon dating has not solved the mystery, that all the indications are that the Shroud's image is photographic, and that the image's "blood" includes DNA.
