Shroud: The Man of Pain

Kanopy
Genre: 
There is evidence that the Shroud, venerated in France as early as 1350, is the Shroud we see today preserved in Turin, Italy. This program takes the historical high ground as it presents the places, the written evidence, the changes of ownership, the various expositions and the first 1898 photograph that changed everything - and brought the Holy Shroud into the realm of modern science and to worldwide attention for the very first time. This is the most authentic and definitive program yet produced on the Holy Shroud. It reports on the first examinations of the fabric and the imprint left on it by the body of a dead man who had been tortured and crucified. It describes the discovery of red blood cells and pollen traces, carbon-14 dating, and computerized image processing. The program features a one-hour documentary film, The Man of Pain, which was the Official Documentary of the 1998 Holy Shroud Exposition Committee and was granted the right to use the Vatican's Jubilee 2000 logo. It is the only documentary yet made to present High Definition (HDTV) footage of the private exposition which took place on June 25, 1997 - and the only documentary to be filmed since the fire that badly damaged Guarini's Chapel.
