"The Shroud of Jesus" Fake?However, when testing carbon sticking polemic in 1988.
The shroud of Turin or the Shroud of Turin. This artifact has been debated for centuries. That said, this fabric is wrapping the body of Jesus after the crucifixion.
This special fabric, it has a faint image of the blood - a tall long-haired, bearded. Blood printed clearly, especially at the wrists and ankles - in accordance with the position of Jesus when nailed and then crucified.
However, when testing carbon sticking polemic in 1988 declared the cloth was made between the years 1260 to 1390. Long after Jesus' death. What really happened?
Italian art expert, Luciano Buso reveals new theory related to these relics. It comes with a decent idea for a movie like "Da Vinci Code". He said, the shroud that is now stored in Turin Cathedral is a replica, not the original. It is the work of medieval artists, Giotto.

This conclusion he could after months of research on the shroud image.
He could not touch directly, because, the Turin Shroud is stored in a closed place and will not be issued unless there are special events.
Buso one of the basic theory is the existence of an undisclosed number 15 on the cloth. He said, it is indicated that Giotto made artificial fabrics in 1315.
Buso insisted, 700 years ago is not unusual for artists to put the date in their work, to ensure the authenticity of his work. However, this practice is known only to a handful of specific people to avoid counterfeiting.
"He did not intend to falsify anything, it's obvious from his signature" Giotto 15 "to mark his work that he has made the year 1315. Cain was not a fake, he just asked to make copies," said Buso as published the Daily Mail, June 8, 2011.
Boso speculate, is the church called on Giotto, given the deteriorating condition of the original fabric and eventually perished over the centuries.
Why is Giotto? Because he is probably the most famous artist at that time. He was instantly famous when his works decorate the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua - a mural depicting the life of Mary and Christ.
Responding to these claims, no one party at the Cathedral of Turin - the fabric is kept commenting. However, Professor Bruno Barberis, director of the Shroud Museum argues, "I think this theory is ridiculous."
He added, makes the claim that Giotto was not too convincing replica. The museum believes, the image of the blood contained in the fabric is not the result of artistic methods. Never mind the date, claims a number of people who claimed to see the Greek and Hebrew in the fabric - nothing is proven.
"We believe the images that exist in the fabric is formed by the body of a man who was tortured and then crucified. However necessary number of tests to prove whether the fabric is original," he said.
Amid all the controversy, last year Pope Benedict knelt for several minutes in front of the linen that - when the relics were exhibited all five times over a period of 100 years.
The fabric is a concern many people - historians, church leaders, skeptical group, and Catholics for 500 years. Even the German dictator, Adolf Hitler was obsessed and intend to steal it.
Post-test of carbon in 1988, it never was more testing of the cloth. Vatican balked. While some scientists offer an argument, that the contamination over the centuries - from water damage and fire - can affect the test results of carbon.
The Shroud is given by the Duke of Savoykepada Archbishop of Turin in 1578. Since then the cloth is always stored there.
