Editorial Reviews

The Shroud of Turin has long mystified the world, pitting the faithful against science. Is the ghostly image impressed on a burial cloth truly Jesus? A 1988 radiocarbon test dated it to between 1260 and 1390 A.D. But recent studies question the test's validity, and scientists are still unable to explain how the image got there. DVD Features: Interactive Menus; Scene Selection

This is a good attempt at the Shroud that had been debunked by Carbon Testing previously and shows that science sometimes does not have the last word. New findings are very convincing and shows that there is more learn than what just one test show. A highly recommended show for both believers and those with an open mind. This is one of History's Channel better attempt at being impartial and fair.

I'm not sure I agree with everything the program offers up, but it was fascinating to watch. I bought several books after viewing this to fill out my knowledge of the shroud (myth?). I thought this documentary was well made and very professional.

This isn't completely devoid of value. There are some good points of investigation. However,, one should bear in mind that this is from the History Channel and, therefore, has a noticeable anti-Christian bias.

For one thing, the re-enactment of the burial and discovery of the empty tomb....uh, well, Joseph of Arimathea is the one to discover that the body is missing. Oops! LOL, that's a pretty basic mistake that anyone with even a cursory background in Christianity would have immediately corrected. For those who don't now, the key witness, the "apostle to the apostles" was a woman, Mary Magdalene. That's one of the reasons that the story is probably true. (If the resurrection had been a fabricated story, then the story-tellers never would have put a mere woman in such an important role.) So, there's something that makes one wonder whether or not the documentary has any other, scientific, mistakes.

The image transfer technique using iron oxide is given a fair bit of time, ending with a comment that researchers in STURP doubt it was the technique responsible for the image on the shroud. Yet, none of those objections are presented. (As it happens, it couldn't have been done that way. When a light is shown under the shroud, the image disappears and only the blood stains remain. That would not work with Craig's imaging technique.)

Also, there is an emphasis in the end on carbon dating, which is used to cast doubt on the validity of the shroud being that of Jesus. Today, we know that carbon dating is not the most reliable methodology, and the carbon dating on the shroud was skewed by BOTH extreme heat of fire centuries ago and by pollen proteins probably introduced at the time of burial.

There are a couple of interesting points in this video, such as the experiment with radiation and the fireman's testimony about his experience rescuing the shroud from a blazing fire in Turin. However, a better documentary can be found at

This movie is visually stunning. The background material is interesting and revealing without getting overly technical. I highly recommend its viewing. It will lead the audience to seek more information and ask more questions about the Shroud itself and the subject of the Man of the Shroud.

This is an old version of the shroud analysis. The History 2 Channel is currently Oct 2014) showing a much more up to date analysis.
