Based on the in-depth research Badde did for his book, these films reveal that experts have determined the cloth of Manoppello is not Veronica's veil, as some thought, but rather the face cloth laid over the face of Jesus in the tomb. Unlike the Shroud of Turin, which is a "negative" of the image, the image on the face cloth is a "positive" of the face of Christ. The fabric of this cloth is so thin and delicate that it is impossible to paint on-yet the image in Manoppello is clearly visible and, moreover, when laid over the image of the face on the Shroud of Turin forms a perfect match. Includes footage of Pope Benedict in Manoppello to honor this amazing relic.
Enjoy the thrilling journey of discovery as these films research this remarkable relic, tracing the turbulent history of the Holy Face from ancient times up to the historic 2006 visit to Manoppello by Pope Benedict XVI.

I so enjoyed reading this book and seeing the photographs. It was so wonderful to see the face of Jesus in this cloth and to see how it matched the shroud. WonderfulPublished on January 17, 2014 by forget me not
