The Shroud of Turin’s Templar

Posted by on April 13th, 2009

The Shroud of Turin has been, well, shrouded in mystery for centuries. It tempts the hopeful and irks the skeptics. The Vatican refuses to comment on the authenticity of the cloth that wrapped Jesus’ body after the crucifixion. It seems a little convenient that they have now used a secret order of Knights to explain the shroud’s whereabouts during a serious record gap. Especially when you consider that three independent carbon dating tests, performed during the eighties and published in ‘Nature Magazine’, confirmed that the shroud was created at least 1300 years after the crucifixion during the middle ages. So until concrete evidence can be found, claims that the Knights Templar secretly guarded the shroud for a hundred years seem speculative at best.
