In recent years, skeptics have dismissed the Shroud of Turinas a Medieval fake. Some have even said it was created byLeonardo da Vinci. But new evidence shows that the clothfrom the shroud that researchers were using to carbon dateit was taken from a area that was clearly patched with newermaterial.

An article in the current issue of the peer-reviewedchemistry journal Thermochimica Acta dismisses the resultsof the carbon-14 dating done in 1988. At that time, threelaboratories, in Oxford (England), Zurich and Tucson,decided the shroud was a fake dating from 1260 to 1390,meaning it couldn’t have been the burial cloth of Christ.

We recently wrote about new evidence, based on a seam in the cloth, showing that the Shroud of Turin may be real. Now it’s been discovered that the back side of the cloth, which has been covered up for hundreds of years, shows a ghostly image of the face as well. However, the image could not have “bled through” from the other side, since it’s only on the surface on both sides of the cloth, with a layer of bare fabric in between.

Rossella Lorenzi writes in Discovery News that the back side of the shroud has remained hidden since it was covered by another layer of fabric in 1534, after the shroud was blackened in a fire.
