Friend Center, Rm 008

Wednesday, March 20 | McCosh 28 | 5-6:15 PM

Speaker: Father Andrew Dalton, Catholic Priest and Professor of Theology

The Shroud of Turin is a linen cloth that bears the bloodstained image of a man who has been tortured and crucified. It is also the most studied archeological object in history. Is it a forgery? Or the natural effect of a supernatural event? And what does it matter?

Father Andrew Dalton, professor at the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum in Rome and Shroud expert, offers a public defense of the Shroud’s authenticity on historical and scientific grounds.

Talk followed by Q&A.
