A Shroud of Turin replica and exhibit will be on display at Queen of All Saints’ Legacy Center beginning Saturday, March 6 and lasting to mid-month.

The Shroud of Turin has long been venerated by the faithful and is believed by many to be the burial cloth of Jesus of Nazareth. The Shroud is one of the most scientifically studied religious icons in history. As science has progressed, so has the speculation on how the image of the crucified man of the Shroud was made.

After decades of exhaustive and medical, historical and scientific research, the Center for the Study of the Passion of the Christ and the Holy Shroud has developed a moving and informative mobile exhibit on the Shroud of Turin. The centerpiece is a full length photographic image of the Shroud made by the Eastman Kodak Co. In addition, the mobile exhibit contains a large crucified corpus showing the wounds of Christ corresponding to the passion narrative in the Gospel accounts and the wounds shown on the Shroud. The exhibit contains over 60 panels detailing the history and science of the Shroud.

The exhibit is free of charge and can be viewed daily from 6 am to 8 pm. The Legacy Center is located at 1719 E. Barker Ave. in Michigan City and visitors should park in the back of the building and enter off Esther Street. For more information, visit www.qas.org.
