Witnesses to Mystery: Investigations Into Christ's RelicsAuthor: Grzegorz Gorny
Publisher: Ignatius Press
Publication Date: 2013-10-22
In this lavishly illustrated large coffee-table volume, writer Gorny and photographer Rosikon embarked on a two year investigative journey to seek the truth behind all the relics associated with the passion of Christ. The authors investigated a rich body of documentary evidence found in various museums, archives and churches surrounding sacred objects believed to have been preserved since Jesus' lifetime, exploring and collaborating with historians and scientists in their attempt to verify the relics' authenticity. They reach their conclusions not so much on the basis of faith as on the evidence supplied by historical sources and expert scientific opinion.
The relics associated with the Passion - the suffering, death and burial of Christ - have long proved something of an enigma for the scientific community. Relics investigated, and photographed, for this glorious volume include: the Cross, nails, crown of thorns, pillar of scourging, Christ's tunic, the Veil of Manoppello, the Sudarium of Oviedo, the famous Shroud of Turin burial cloth and more.
"An unsurpassed holy treasure! Journey through time and become deeply moved from start to finish during a breathtaking one of a kind pilgrimage to the sacred places of Christ's Passion. Experience history and become enlightened and inspired through this vastly comprehensive study of Christ's holy relics. I highly recommend this book!" --- Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle, EWTN TV Host and author of numerous books including: The Miraculous Medal: Stories, Prayers, and Devotions
