The Man of the Shroud Exhibition is an extensive exhibit on the history, significance and scientific aspects of what is widely believed to be the authentic burial cloth of Jesus.

The Shroud of Turin is a 14-foot-long linen cloth which bears the mysterious image of a man who has been scourged and crucified. […] The impressions and bloodstains, which are somewhat shadowy and unclear, revealed an incredible detail and clarity when first photographed in 1898. Since then, hundreds of scientific researchers of all faiths have studied the cloth, using the analytic tools of over 25 areas of study. Each new study and discipline have uncovered data that had not been previously imagined, resulting in new interest not only in the Cloth itself but also in the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus. (Courtesy of the Vancouver Shroud Association)

This exhibition hosted by St. Anthony of Padua Parish in Vancouver consists of 27 professionally prepared documentary museum boards, a collection of recreated artifacts of Christ’s Passion, a replica of the cloth of Oviedo, and an actual-size photographic reproduction of the Turin Shroud. There will also be lecture talks by renowned Shroud specialist and scholar Dr. Cheryl White.

Come see how and why, for centuries, this mysterious and controversial artifact has captivated scientists, scholars and people of various faiths all over the world!
