According to Researcher Peter J. Shield PhD, Pope Benedict XVI visit to the Shroud of Turin prompts the question "Is ithe Shroud of Turin Real?" Pope Benedict XVI will visit the Shroud of Turin on the 2nd of May, 2010.
The Pope is to visit the Shroud on its non scheduled public viewing just ten years after the Exposition in the jubilee year. The Shroud will be on display in the Cathedral of Torino starting on 10 April to 23 May.
Dr. Peter J. Shield PhD, whose Radio and Television broadcasts of the "World of Unexplained Mysteries" has featured what he describes as the world's greatest unexplained mystery "The Holy Shroud of Turin" has been involved in reporting on the evidence for the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin for over 20 years. It is his considered opinion that the Shroud is the real article.
Dr. Shield arrived at this conclusion after an interview with Dr. Alan Adler who did the original blood analysis on the Shroud.
"The amassed evidence for its authenticity is indisputable! I recorded this interview prior to Alan's unexpected death in 2000. The Pope is to visit the Shroud on its non scheduled public viewing in the spring of 2010, just ten years after the Exposition in the jubilee year; the Shroud will once again be on display in the Cathedral of Torino starting on 10 April to 23 May" Dr. Shield said.
"In 2010, and for the first time, it will be possible to see the Holy Shroud following the intervention it underwent in 2002: a conservation and restoration operation during which pieces of cloth that had been burned in the Chambery fire of 1532, and the various 'patches' applied by the Poor Clares, were removed, together with the Holland cloth to which the Shroud had been fastened in 1534, with the Holy Linen now placed on a new support." -- Peter J.

The Man on the Shroud!
He was naked.
He was 6 ft. tall.
He wore a beard and shoulder length hair.
He had an enlarged chest from trying to breath.
He had been beaten with a Roman Flagrum.
He had puncture marks on his skull.
He had bled whilst upright on the cross.
He had suffered most of his wounds whilst alive.

The recent announcement that an Italian scientist has duplicated the image on the Shroud proves nothing.
