Jul 26, 2019 · It’s as if the Shroud of Turin exists precisely to support this observation: Even though the “medieval forgery” theory is the least credible of all explanations, those who need to believe it will continue to accept the 1988 radiocarbon dating no matter how many future analyses discredit it.

The Shroud of Turin is said by some to be the burial cloth of Jesus and by others a medieval forgery. Now, a new study using modern forensic techniques suggests the bloodstains on the shroud are completely unrealistic, supporting arguments that it is a fake. They found that if one examined all the bloodstains on the shroud together, \\"you realize these cannot be real bloodstains from a person who was crucified and then put into a grave, but actually handmade by the artist that created the shroud,\\"study lead author Matteo Borrini, a forensic anthropologist at Liverpool John Moores University in England, told Live Science.
The Shroud of Turin is an ancient linen cloth about 15 feet long by 4 feet wide (4.4 by 1.1 meters) that bears the image of what appears to be a crucified man's body. On display at the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, Italy, it is one of many shrouds claimed over the centuries to be the one true burial cloth of Jesus.
But in 1988, scientists carbon-dated the shroud's origins to between A.D. 1260 and 1390, supporting claims that it is merely a hoax, as Jesus' lifeis thought to have come to an end in A.D. 33. Still, whether or not the shroud is a fake is still a hotly debated question. [Religious Mysteries: 8 Alleged Relics of Jesus]
For instance, two short rivulets of the blood on the back of the left hand of the shroud are only consistent with a person standing with their arms held at a 45-degree angle. In contrast, the forearm bloodstains found on the shroud match a person standing with their arms held nearly vertically. A person couldn't be in these two positions at once.
The scientists did find that the bloodstains on the front of the chest did match those from a spear wound. However, the stains on the lower back which supposedly came from the spear wound while the body was positioned on its back were completely unrealistic, they said.
The scientists detailed their findings online July 10 in the Journal of Forensic Sciences. Originally published on Live Science.
