May 16th Italian Club Presentation: The Shroud of Turin and Scientific Evidence

The Shroud of Turin

The presentation will provide an overview of  the thousands of items of scientific and medical evidence that has been acquired from the Shroud of Turin to date.

The presenter will further discuss millions and billions of unfakable items of scientific evidence that could also be acquired if the Shroud was tested at the atomic and molecular levels.  This total evidence could have a profound influence in answering some of the most fundamental questions that humanity has struggled with throughout its existence.

About the Speaker Mark Antonacci is an attorney who, for more than thirty years, has studied all aspects of the evidence and its relevance regarding the Shroud of Turin.  He gave a keynote address at the international conference held in Frascati, Italy in conjunction with the Shroud’s last exhibition in 2010 in which he presented a series of scientific tests and experiments to be conducted on the Shroud and its samples.  He is the founder and president of The Resurrection of the Shroud Foundation, a non-profit corporation that funds scientific research relating to the Shroud.  He is the author of The Resurrection of the Shroud (New York: M. Evans and Co., 2000) and is writing another book on this subject. ​
