Description

The mistery of the Holy Sindone, the linen sheet impressed by the image of a man similar to Jesus Christ, is told by the Sacra Sindone Museum in Turin. Founded in 1936 by the Congregation of the Holy Shroud, it was setted inside the homonymous Church in 1998. The Museum has encouraged researches around its Sindone from XVI century to today. These studies include essays of scientists, theologians and artists from all over the world.
Inside we can find the famous X-rays of Giuseppe Enrie, the first photographer who obtained from Savoia Family (the early Principles of Piemonte and later of the Italy Kingdom), the authorization to take a picture of the Sindone. We can find the ancient wooden box that contained the Sindone when it arrived in Turin in 1578, also. The Museum conserves ancient books, tridimensional images took with the electronic microscope and others various explanations about small traces found on the sheet. Everything extends the museum’s selection, dedicated to explain the mistery around this Image. The entrance is in 28 St. Domenico Street, and it’s open all days from 9 to 12 and from 15 to 19. Tickets are around 5 or 6 euros. The Sindone is conserved inside Torino Cathedral, dedicated to St John.
