Man of the Shroud


Man of the Shroud

St. Peter’s proudly presents the Man of the Shroud Exhibition
Friday, March 23 – Tuesday, April 10, 2018

The exhibit has been organized by a group of clergy and laity in Vancouver, British Columbia. Coordinated with the professional assistance of Meagan Kus, curator of the White Rock Museum, it consists of a series of professionally-prepared documentary museum boards; a collection of recreated artifacts of Christ’s Passion; and an actual-size photographic reproduction of the Turin Shroud.

The Shroud of Turin is a 14-foot long linen cloth which bears the mysterious image of a man who has been scourged and crucified. Since at least medieval times, it has been venerated as the cloth in which Jesus’ body was wrapped in the tomb; St. John’s Gospel describes it as having been left behind in the tomb at the Resurrection. The impressions and bloodstains, which are somewhat shadowy and unclear, revealed an incredible detail and clarity when first photographed in 1898. Since then, hundreds of scientific researchers of all faiths have studied the cloth, using the analytic tools of over 25 areas of study. Theories have now been advanced which account for the first millennium of the Shroud’s history and its influence on Christian art and liturgy.

In conjunction with the Exhibit, we will presenting a series of talks with keynote speakers Fr. Andrew Dalton LC and Mr. Barrie Schwortz
