The exhibition centres around a life-size replica of the Turin Shroud, argued by some to be the actual burial cloth of Jesus (as), used after the crucifixion.
Building on the success of the 2015 & 2016 exhibitions, The Review of Religions is pleased to host once again a life-sized replica of the Turin Shroud and the Tomb of Jesus at this year’s annual convention in Alton, Hampshire.
