Vatican says Turin Shroud is ‘impossible to falsify’ – lending weight to experiment that showed it was made in ‘blinding flash’

Shroud of Torin

The official Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano said this week that, ‘For science, the shroud continues to be an ‘impossible object’ – impossible to falsify.’

The statement, in a lengthy article, is a rare event. The Vatican owns the Turin shroud. But it usually shies away from any statement over whether the shroud – supposed to have formed Christ’s burial robe – is real.

The article referred to a recent experiment by scientists at Italy’s National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development, which found that the markings on the shroud could only have been created by a ‘blinding flash of light’.

Monsignor Giuseppe Ghibert of the commission in Turin which supervises the relic told the official newspaper: ‘Revelations about the shroud easily assume a sensational tone, but in this case the measured way the scientists speak of their research is to be appreciated.’
